City of Colorado Springs / Fire / Ridealongs

Ridealongs

The Colorado Springs Fire Department does allow citizens to ride along on a fire engine. 

  • Riders must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Riders are allowed to ride two times per year for up to twelve hours each time. 
  • There is no guarantee, implied or otherwise, that you will respond to a fire, medical emergency, traffic accident, or other emergency call for service.
  • Riders are observers only and will not participate unless directly asked to do so by the Officer in charge.
  • Riders are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner, and disregard for this expectation may result in denial of future ridealongs.
  • Applicants with the Colorado Springs Fire Department may not do ridealongs.

To schedule a ridealong, please go directly to the fire station you wish to ride with and ask to speak to an officer.  They will give you a form to fill out and give you the proper instructions.
