South Whatcom Fire Authority Ride Along Program

Ride Along Program

Interested in taking a ride with us? We would be glad to have you! Feel free to contact us about the program Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. Prior to your ride along experience, we need you to fill out a waiver form. Also, please take a look at our ride along guidelines.

Riders must be at least 16 years of age and have no disabilities that would require accommodation on an emergency scene. Prospective riders under the age of 18 must be approved to ride by the Fire Chief and have the permission of their parent/guardian. Special consideration may be given to riders who are enrolled in a First Responder/EMT course and have the permission of their sponsoring agency.
