Children's Fire Prevention Birthday Party Request

We appreciate you considering Abingdon Fire Company for your party celebration.  If you chose to have your party here, we hope you will have a memorable and fun experience.

All requests must be made a minimum of 30 days prior to the party date.  Once your request is received, a representative from AFC will contact you to acknowledge receipt of your request.  This generally occurs within 72 hours.

What to expect:

The host will welcome you and keep everything on schedule. The fire company will provide an interactive fire prevention presentation. This may include fire safety in the home, stop drop cover your face and roll, smoke detectors, Exit Drills In The Home (EDITH), a firefighter’s gear, tour of the fire house, and depending on availability party guests may board the apparatus.  Rides are not available and adults are expected to participate in the presentation with their children.

Your party will be held in the engine bay or fire hall.  If in the fire hall, the children will be escorted to the engine bay by a firefighter (if available).  If not available, a fire prevention representative will escort the children.  Tables and chairs will be available for the children; adults will be provided chairs only.  A table will be provided for your food.  Each child will receive a plastic fire helmet.

Helpful Tips:

Please arrive at least 15-30 minutes before your party is scheduled to begin.  This allows time for any set-up that may be required.

Please provide us with the number of guests that will be attending no later than 5 days prior to the party date.

The party room is only accessible for the time your group has scheduled.

Please arrange to bring your own birthday cake.  We do not provide birthday cake(s).

You are responsible for providing your own refreshments, napkins and cups.  You are welcome to bring colored or theme-based goods to decorate if you desire.  Piñata's are not allowed.


Please consider a minimum donation of $100.00 to the Abingdon Fire Company.  If more than 15 children will be attending, please consider increasing your donation.  Your donation helps us cover the cost of hosting your party and assists us with needs of Abingdon Fire Company.
