Birthday Parties

Information

If your child is turning 5 to 8 years old and likes fire engines and fire trucks then you should consider a Birthday party hosted by firefighters at our firehouse!  Learn about "stop-drop-and roll", having a safe place, "get out and stay out", and much more!  Most party's consist of 10 to 18 children. If you feel that you will have more then 18 children please let us know the week before the party.

To get started just contact us by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.  



The Day of the Party

You bring the decorations, (don't go crazy the kids come to see the fire trucks ) food, and drinks for your guests. We supply tables, chairs and the entertainment. We can also supply ice for your cooler.  You will need 4 or 5 plastic table-cloths. All parties start at 11:00am and run until approximately 1:30pm. You may arrive at the fire house at 10:30 in order to get ready for your guests. What we will do is sit the kids down in front of the fire engines while spending some time talking about fire safety. After that, all the kids get to sit behind the wheel of a real fire engine! Following will be lunch. If  you are planning on ordering pizza, Gian Angelo's (973-927-0001) or (973-927-0660) has been very generous to Company 4. The pizza is very good and they deliver!

Unfortunately, the firehouse kitchen can not be used. The kids get to eat in the engine bays where the fire equipment is stored.  Now the real fun starts!  A firefighter will drive one of the engines out of the firehouse. A fireman will spray water from the deck gun (which sits on top of the fire engine) to show how far it can shoot water (really really far).  The Birthday boy or girl along with their guests will then line up to use a real fire hose to put out the fire that's painted on our fire prevention house. (ALL OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES ARE IF WEATHER PERMITS.)

 Cake time! Everyone goes back to their seats, Mom and Dad get the cake out, and we all sing happy birthday. Following cake, we bring the kids back over in front of the fire engine in order to see if our friend Patches and his Pumper will make an appearance! This ends the party and now its time for everyone to go home and practice fire safety! 

Thank you for thinking of using our fire house for your child's birthday party! Our fire fighter's are  100% volunteer and do not receive payment of any kind. They put in a many hours, to make your party a success! Your donation will be used to purchase new handouts and build new props so we may continue teaching fire safety to your children. Due to the rising cost of fire prevention teaching aids, Tot finders, hand outs and Patches (the robotic fire dog), we have set a minimum donation of $200.00. All donations are tax deductible.

 Please make checks payable to the Ironia Firemen's Association.
