Great American Teach-In Engine Demo Request

The Great American Teach-In is November 17, 2022.

Fill out our online application to request for a fire apparatus visit for that day, or any day that week.

Every effort will be made to accommodate your school’s request, however there are limited time slots.

Engine Demo information

Our fire apparatus are available for up to 45 minutes at your school; however, they remain in-service. If an emergency occurs within that engine’s territory, they must leave to respond. This may also affect arrival times, if the engine is returning from an emergency call.Please have an alternate plan in case this should occur.

During the 45-minute demo, our firefighters will discuss different topics ranging from a “day in the life” of a firefighter, the gear they wear during a fire and/or the importance of having an escape plan in case of a fire.

Important tips regarding your request
