Lansdowne Fire Company mentions they have a year round fire prevention program.
Sharon Hill Fire Company mentions on their website that they offer tours of the fire house and will speak at public events.
My best recommendation is to do a search of your local fire company and seeif they are offering anything to the public. I am sure I missed one or two. If anyone would like me to add an event to this list email me at email@example.com. I would be more than happy to add it.
Thank you for your service to the community.

Whereas I do not currently have a fireman in the house, the following photographs contain my legacy. My grandfather Harry Peet is in the 1929 and 1948 photograph below, perhaps a relative of yours is, as well. My great grandfather Patrick Dougherty was also a fireman.
Vintage prints, I am proud to have in my collection.
1926 Fourth Annual Banquet Delaware Fireman's Association April 7, 1926.
I believe it says Brookline Square Club but there is a chunk out of the photo, my best guess.
If you click on the photograph it should bring the faces up closer.
