Bought to you by Life with a Baby

Fire Station 1 – 64 Geneva Street, St. Catharines

The kids will get to explore the station, meet the firefighters, and learn all about the fire station! The safety of the guests is very important so therefore the group leader needs to keep track of everyone while working with the on shift Captain. The tour will consist of a brief introduction, a fire safety presentation, a tour of the vehicles (they will be allowed into them) and we will demonstrate what a Firefighter looks like in full personal protective equipment.

Note: If the fire station gets a call, they will have to respond!


This event is limited to 20 people only so please add all adults or kids coming with you to the event under guests.  And also, indicate the number of kids attending and their age during registration.

Register here!
