Events at the Fire Station
Due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer birthday parties at the firehouse this year. Once the pandemic begins to subside, we will reopen for birthday parties.
We host birthday parties at our Fire Station on Saturdays between the hours of 11:00am and 1:00pm. The maximum number of children we can host is 25.
During the birthday party we review fire safety, our fire gear, and provide a tour of our apparatus bay where the children get see the trucks up close and even go in them. Weather permitting, we will invite you and your children for a ride in a fire truck!
Our fire station features a large event space, a fully-functional professional chef's kitchen, ample parking adjacent to the station, a playground next door and access to the sprawling McGuane Field.
To request a party date, please contact us with pertinent details and we will get back with you to coordinate the event. There is a minimum donation. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Parties are for children turning 4 and older (i.e. minimum age is three years old turning four years old)
NHFD has everything you need for the perfect party!

Noroton Heights Fire Department's Open House is an annual tradition. We invite volunteers from other departments and emergency services from around Darien, CT. The Open House is a weekend morning/afternoon with guests free to come-and-go. Our fire trucks are pulled out of their bays and we open the compartments so children can have a look at the tools we use every day.
The Open House is more than just seeing our fire house and equipment. It's a chance to see how the broader Darien, CT town reacts to fire alarms and calls for emergency help. Connecticut State Police stop by with demonstrations how seat belts work in a car crash. Darien Police (and sometimes the K-9 dog!) pay a visit and show off their vehicles. Noroton Heights members talk audiences through best practices in a fire, like evacuating below the smoke level and deciding on a common meeting point for the family.
Stop by and visit us for the Open House. From good food, to run, meeting your neighbors, a beautiful day out in town with family, and meeting your local fire deparment, it's great fun and an interesting look at your town's fire department.
The Open House event is fun for the whole family; a community gathering with live demonstrations, a chance to meet the volunteers staffing our department, explore our trucks and equipment, learn about fire safety, see how fire fighters handle dangerous situations, and take a ride on a fire truck.
Amusement, fire education, live demonstrations, and meet your neighbors!
Plenty of food, drinks and refreshments for all ages.
Win prizes and giveaways after demonstrations.
Learn about fire safety from your local volunteer fire fighters.
