Community Involvement

Touring & Visits

Schedule a fire station tour, classroom visit, or request our virtual attendance at a community event using our Station Tour or Event Request Form.

Please let us know about your event at least two weeks in advance.

To request a classroom visit, a tour of a fire station, or Arvada Fire's attendance at a neighborhood event, submit your request at least 2 weeks in advance. We will do our best to accommodate the event on the day and time requested, however, we ask that you have other dates in mind in case your first date of choice is not available.

Most of our visits or tours include a safety message, a demonstration of the gear that we wear, a tour of the fire truck, and, if applicable, a tour of the fire station. This will take about one hour.

Emergency response is our top priority. This means the crew may be late, may have to leave early, or may not be able to show up at all due to the need to respond to an emergency. Please let us know if you need to reschedule because of one of these issues.

We do not host birthday parties at the stations but are happy to make an appearance at a birthday party at an off-site location that is within our District. Birthday groups are also welcome to schedule a tour of a fire station on that special day, however, please do not bring gifts, food, or drink into the fire station during your scheduled tour. If the fire crew had to leave for emergency response, we would not want for you to be left outside the station without these items if your party had to be moved elsewhere.

Home Safety Visits

Arvada Fire is happy to help you with your home smoke alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors (CO) detectors. If you need help changing the batteries in your alarms, if you need smoke alarms and can't afford to buy them, or if you need help installing the new alarms that you purchased, please fill out our online form. We will be happy to help! Additionally, we can offer you a home risk assessment to help reduce slips, trips, and falls in the home.
