Child Sitting Inside a Fire EngineTours & Demonstrations

To schedule a tour or demonstration, please call 512-401-5220 between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm and talk with Susan Yount. She will need the date and location you would like to tour so the correct contact information can be given to you to set up the appointment. Tours are given at all stations, and are tailored for the appropriate age group touring the station.

Please keep in mind that the department has regular job duties and training sessions, so the tours must be planned in advance and scheduled around the department activities.

For children under the age of 10, we request that there be 1 adult chaperone per 4 children.
