Never been to the Belmont Firehouse? Now's a good time to go

PORTLAND,Ore.- The historic Belmont Firehouse in Southeast Portland is expanding its hours, which means there will be more opportunities for folks to take a tour and learn what it's like to be a firefighter. The firehouse is located at Southeast 35th and Belmont and is open to the public on certain days or by appointment for a private tour. Their new hours, starting on March 7, will be:

 
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (for tours by appointment)
  • Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (open to the public)
  • Second Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (open to the public for Safety Saturday)

If you've never been to the Belmont Firehouse, it's quite a treat. You get to slide down a fire pole and sit in the cab of a fire truck for a simulated emergency response, among lots of other activities. 

It's a lot of fun... and very educational too. We visited the Belmont Firehouse last year when some school kids were there for a tour and learned quite a bit about the equipment that firefighters use and the difficulties and dangers they face. It was an eye opening experience, even for the adults.

Tours are free and you can make arrangements for groups - birthday parties and weddings are even held there. Call (503) 823-3615 for details.
