Ever wondered what it’s like to work at a fire hall? Let us show you! Tours and Demonstrations are for all age groups and any group or organization. For children under the age of 10, we request that there be one adult supervisor or chaperone for every four children. The Houston Volunteer Fire Department also provides fire safety lectures and fire extinguisher demonstrations upon request to local schools, groups or service organizations and industry.
