The City of San Diego's fire stations are open daily from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for tours and visits on a prearranged and approved basis.

Visitors are welcome to meet firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians and see the equipment used to keep their neighborhoods safe.

Tours are limited to groups of 25 or fewer (adults and children). We request one adult for every five children visiting our facilities. Firefighters do not attend, or host birthday parties. If you are looking for a party venue with a firefighting theme, you may want to try San Diego's Firehouse Museum at 619-232-3473.

To arrange a tour, please complete the Station Tour Request Form.

Please allow at least three weeks for processing and arranging your request.

Please be aware that the fire stations are on 24-hour call. Even with booked tours, the possibility exists that the crew could be called out due to an emergency and the station will be closed when you arrive.

If a crew is not at the station for a scheduled tour, please wait whatever you feel is a reasonable amount of time. If the crew does not return in that time frame, please contact us to reschedule your tour.
