The perfect idea for the child who has interest in firetrucks or firefighting is a birthday party held at an actual active fire station. Call the station at (301) 365-2028 or e-mail to get more information and schedule your child’s birthday party today. Birthday party bookings are for two hours in which you will be received and assisted by a station guide. The birthday party is held in our meeting room, with ample space for up to approximately 35 children and their parents. As part of holding the birthday party at the station you are reserved the use of the meeting room and can use it for any other activities that the children may want to do.

As part of hosting a birthday party at CJPVFD, children will receive in the first hour of the program:

  • A guided tour of the fire station and fire apparatus

  • The opportunity to get up close and personal with firefighters and their equipment

  • A fire safety presentation and equipment demonstration hosted by one of the firefighters

  • A fire safety gift-bag and fire helmet for each child in attendance

  • A party that they will never forget

It is, however, left to the family throwing the birthday party to provide any food, decorations, and activities for the second hour. We will set up the room with enough tables and chairs for the amount of children in attendance prior to arrival. Arrive 15-30 minutes early to setup any food and decorations and let the fun begin!
