Special accommodations can be made for larger groups and evening hours. We have a lot of cub scouts, youth groups, day cares and many other different groups that come to see one of the stations and all the equipment. The department can accommodate interested parties almost any time and delivers a prevention education program prior to the tour if you’d like. The tour and the program will be customized to ensure age appropriate materials.
