Ride - A - Long

The Richmond Department of Fire and Emergency Services Ride - a - Long program was designed in 1996 to educate the fire department customers on what firefighters do and how they do it. In addition, the program was created to enhance the relationship between Richmond firefighters and our customers.

The Ride - a - Long program allows any customer to spend a day with any of the fire companies located throughout the City of Richmond. Citizens will be allowed to ride on fire department vehicles to emergency incidents to observe firefighters performing their duties. However, customers are not permitted to assist firefighters while they are performing those duties.

Customer visits are scheduled between the hours of 8 a.m. - 11 p.m., Sunday through Saturdays. Customers must submit a request in writing at least 72 hours in advance of their visit to ride.

Customers must submit a driver's license or proof of identification prior to riding on fire department vehicles. They must also sign a Waiver Release Form prior to riding on any fire department vehicles.
