The Belmont Fire Department offers tours of its headquarters located at 14 Gilmanton Road for the purpose of increasing safety awareness.
Tour groups are designed for approximately 5—20 people. There must be adequate supervision for children. Firefighters remain ‘in-service’ during tours. Fire companies may need to respond to emergencies. If they do, it will be necessary for the tour to be rescheduled and your group to exit the station. Also, the visit may be cancelled at the last minute with no notification due to emergency response requirements. Please keep this in mind when visiting.
Firefighters have serious work to do. Birthday party groups are welcome to tour the station but may not hold party festivities at the station. However, we can come to your facility (See FIREFIGHTER VISITS).
Fire station tours may be scheduled between the hours of 9:00am—11:00am and 1:00pm—4:00pm, Monday through Sunday. Evening tours are scheduled under special circumstances. Please allow 2 weeks notice to schedule your visit. Station tours last between 20—40 minutes depending on the age group and topics discussed.
Safety discussions and handout materials vary for different age groups. Please specify the number of participants for each age group on tour.
