How do I schedule a tour of a fire station?
Station tours may be scheduled by calling Normal Fire Headquarters during regular business hours at 309-454-9689. Tours should be scheduled at least 2-3 weeks in advance if possible.

Since the fire station may receive an emergency call while the tour is in progress, responsible adults are required to accompany all tours to monitor the children while the firefighters are gone.

In the event that an emergency call comes in prior to the tour, and you arrive and there is no one at the station, please wait patiently as we will return to the station as soon as the call is completed. If it is not possible to return, we will be happy to reschedule your tour.
