Fire station tours give school aged groups a glimpse of the day-to-day activities involved with being a Cherry Hill Firefighter. The tour lasts approximately thirty (30) minutes and will give participants an inside look at the fire apparatus and the specialized equipment the firefighters use. They will get to see the station where the firefighters and EMT’s spend their 24 hour shift and learn what they do to prepare themselves for the emergencies they may face.
