The “Firefighter for a Day” event is sponsored each year by Fresno Fire Chief’s Foundation and Fresno Fire Department.
The event provides members of the community an opportunity to tour historical Fire Station 3 and, possibly, participate in the lifesaving skills demonstrated by the men and women of the Department. During this fun filled event, participants are offered opportunities to participate in a Basement Search and Rescue, Auto Extrication, and Drill Tower Burn. Participants operate in small spaces, maneuver through high angles, navigate in hot environments, and participate in heavy lifting situations. All conditions and/or situations are led by an instructor and/or an assistant(s) for obvious safety reasons; all activities will be performed as a team of two individuals. Community members get to enjoy lunch and a video with the Training Staff and Crew of Station 3. This event is restricted to participants age 18 or older.
This is an annual event and seating is limited. Contact (559) 493-8759 for more information.
