Schedule a Class or Station Tour

To schedule a class, contact Administrative Assistant Deborah Rosenbaum by calling 219.462.8325, faxing 219.531.8812, or by e-mail.

Please understand that the Firefighters that are giving your safety talk and/or tour are ON DUTY personnel and still promptly respond to 9-1-1 emergencies. Our primary goal is to save lives and property, at any time. While we strive to complete educational requests at the designated dates and times, sometimes we have to leave early / come late / are not able to attend and have to reschedule due to unfolding emergencies. Thank you for your understanding.
