Kid’s Safety House

The Kid’s Safety House is a 30′ trailer towed by a full size pickup truck, which is supported by Division personnel trained in its operation. It is a fantastic educational tool, and an excellent platform to provide a hands-on experience component to the Junior Fire Marshal – 4th grade program. The Safety House teaches areas such as kitchen fire safety, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and fire escape planning/practice.

Kid’s Safety House requests must be made at least 30 days in advance. Kid’s Safety House appearances may be cancelled if adequate staffing is not secured prior to one week from the date of the event. It can only be scheduled for groups of 100 or more. A working area of 30′ x 100′ and a level flat surface capable of supporting 10,000 lbs is required for operation. It cannot be operated in a fire lane.

Apparatus Appearances

Citizens may request that an engine come out for an event such as a community day or block party. Unfortunately Henrico Fire can not attend birthday parties anymore.

Apparatus appearance requests must be made at least 30 days in advance. Please remember our apparatus must remain available for emergency response. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but emergency calls for service may cause units to leave early, arrive late, or fail to arrive at all. Due to this unpredictability, we recommend letting the arrival of the fire engine be a surprise for the participants of the event.

To make a request, please fill out the request form with the following information:

  • Contact information including name, address and telephone number.
  • Date, time and location of the birthday party.
  • Group size and age range. (i.e. number/ages of children and number of parents)

The Division does not allow birthday parties to be held at the firehouse.
