In response to the COVID-19 situation, Lakeside Fire Protection District has announced a temporary suspension of station tours, school visits and appearances at community events until further notice. For more information about COVID-19 and local impacts, please visit the Coronavirus Disease 2019 page from the County of San Diego.
The Lakeside Fire Protection District values its connection with the community and is happy to offer station tours and school visits. These are great opportunities for community members to get a personal experience with the firefighters and learn about daily activities, services, equipment and much more.
Station tours are offered at any of our four fire stations. Visitors will receive a guided tour of the station to see where the firefighters eat, sleep, study and train while on-duty. Visitors will also have the opportunity to get a hands-on demonstration of the firefighting equipment, fire engine and paramedic ambulance.
To schedule a station tour, please fill out our station tour request form.
School Visits / Community Events
School visits are a great supplement to the classroom schedule and provide important safety information to the students. A typical visit will consist of a fire engine coming to the school and firefighters providing a brief safety lecture followed by a hands-on demonstration of their protective gear and equipment. Students will also get an opportunity to tour the fire engine and even sit in the driver’s seat.
Additionally, you can request for us to attend a local community event. These events include races, fairs, pageants and holiday activities.
To schedule a school visit or community event, please fill out our school visit/community event request form.
Due to the fact that school visits are conducted while on-duty, they are limited only to schools within the Lakeside Fire Protection District. If your school is not within our district, we can provide you with the contact information of the fire department that serves your area.
