The purpose of the Civilian Ride Along Program is to allow citizens the opportunity to see what firefighters encounter on their shifts. Should the Fire Chief approve you to ride out with an engine company, you are subject to the rules laid forth by the shift Lieutenant. The Lieutenant at his discretion or his supervisor has the authority to discontinue the ride along at any time that he/she deems it necessary. Once the application has been processed, someone from the administrative office will contact you.
Questions regarding your application or the status of your application, contact: Susan Yount at 512-401-5222 or email [email protected]
Shifts begin at 7:30 am and ride outs must be completed by 8:00 pm
