How can I request a tour, demo, or presentation for my school, church, or organization.

Tour or Demo Requests:

We typically need approximately two weeks prior to the requested date of the event so that members of the Chesapeake Fire Department can be notified and have ample time to prepare. We try to the best of our ability to accommodate your requests.   All Demos are 2-hours and Station Tours are 1 hour. 

If we are able to accommodate this request please keep in mind, the Engine and Station Crew assigned always remain in service and can be called out for an emergency at a moment’s notice. If it is possible, the Crew will return to the site to continue the demo. However, that is not always possible, which would unfortunately result in the cancellation of the Station Tour or Demo. 

Engine and/or Medic Standby Requests:

Engine and/or Medic Standbys are for large events where emergency services may be required. Engine and/or Medic are out of service for standby events only.

In order to properly commit to the allotted time, the Engine and/or Medic will be out of service, it is important to indicate the end time of your event. 

Once your request is approved, you will receive a confirmation email regarding the details of your event. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Community Risk Reduction Division of the Chesapeake Fire Department at 757-382-6566 Thank you.
