Fire Station Group Tour
The Fire station group tour program is an education activity intended to allow school groups, service clubs, youth organizations, church groups and other civic-minded organizations to schedule and participate in a tour of a working fire station. A tour of the fire station can help younger minds understand that our firefighters work a 24 hour shift and live at the fire house.

At every event, each fire station & fire truck remains “in-service” during tours & visits. Fire companies may need to respond to emergencies at any time. If they do, it will be necessary for the tour to end and your group to exit the station. Please keep this in mind when visiting.
- Walk-ins enjoy one-on one discussion with a firefighter as they are shown around the station and vehicles.
- Group tours are customized to the ages and interest to the visitors. Both young and old getting an up close look at the fire apparatus, equipment and gear. Firefighters combine fire safety education with each tour.
- Dates and Times depend on the availability of the fire department. Please know we will try to accommodate your request to the best of our ability, but other dates/times may be offered. Tours are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis and are subject to available resources.
The Missouri City Fire & Rescue Service’s goal is to have working smoke detectors in every home in Missouri City. In the event of a fire, a smoke alarm can save your life and those of your loved ones. Smoke detectors are the single most important means of preventing house and apartment fire fatalities by providing an early warning signal, so you and your family can escape.
The Fire Department offers a program designed to take care of residents in need of assistance (financially, handicapped and elderly) living within the city limits & ETJ.
If you need to request a battery-operated smoke detector installation or have your home smoke detector batteries checked or changed, MCFRS can help. If possible, please provide your own smoke detector and/or batteries. Providing your own units and batteries will help us further this assistance program throughout the entire community for those that need it.

- Newly Built Homes: If your home is equipped with an electrical smoke detector system (hard-wired systems), please contact a licensed electrician to make any repairs. Many people do not realize that electric detectors can be equipped with batteries. If your smoke detector is beeping intermittently and you cannot figure out how to stop it, check the battery compartment. Remove the battery if one exists and replace with a new one. A battery is not necessary for an electric smoke detector to work, but it is necessary during power failures. The battery will keep the detector working even during power outages – if the battery is changed on a regular basis.
- Renters: If you are a renter, please contact your landlord. Smoke detectors are to be provided by the property owner. Texas law makes landlords responsible for installing and maintaining smoke detectors in their units. There should be at least one smoke detector outside of each bedroom. We do not provide units to renters.
NOTE: Fire officials recommend to change the batteries in all of your smoke detectors on the same day you change the clock for Daylight Saving Time “Spring Forward” or Standard Time “Fall Back”
Remember, Smoke Detectors Save Lives!
