The Northwest Fire District allows members of the community, 18 years of age and older, to participate in a Ride-Along Program with on-duty emergency crews at our various fire stations in the Northwest Fire District communities. This program is intended as an educational endeavor to acquaint community members with the Fire and Emergency Medical Services provided by the Fire District, and to better understand the duties and responsibilities of today’s firefighters.
This program allows for our community to experience responding to emergency calls in a fire truck or in a command vehicle while observing Northwest Fire District operations in a variety of emergency situations. Observers will also experience firsthand what life in the fire house is all about, and to get to know your community firefighters on a more personable basis. We require a two (2) week notice for all Ride-Along requests. Thank you for your cooperation.
