Ride Alongs

This unique program actually allows you to ride in the fire engine, and respond to calls with the department. All observers will fill out a Ride Along Request form, attach a copy of your current driver's license or I.D. Card, and a release of liability form, prior to riding on the engine.

All observers must be at least 16 years old and are subject to a background check prior to participating. For the ride along participant's safety, they must stay in the engine cab area until the Captain can evaluate scene conditions. Due to the work environment, observers are required to wear clean presentable blue jeans or pants and a blue T- shirt or golf shirt. Comfortable shoes should be worn. Observers are eligible to participate in the Ride Along program, once every six months.
