Fire Station Tour
At Pelham Batesville we offer the public the opportunity to tour any of our facilities so you can have a better understanding of what a firefighter's daily activities consist of and the equipment they utilize during emergencies. Fire station tours are excellent opportunities for youngsters and adults to learn what is like to be a firefighter. Tours include a look at the fire trucks and various equipment that is used to help save lives and minimize property damage. You also get the opportunity to look at some of the gear that firefighters must use to protect themselves inside of a burning building. Due to the nature of the fire and life safety business, firefighters are on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Therefore, they must train, exercise, eat, and sleep at the fire station. Many firefighters will tell you that a fire station is like a second home.
Station tours are available upon request and are conducted daily from 9:00am - 4:00pm. You may telephone us at 864-877-1247 or e-mail us to schedule a tour. Tours should have a minimum of 10 children and adults, and no more than 50 participants. In addition, you must schedule your request at least two weeks in advance.
