Ride-Along Program

The Fairbanks Fire Department allows ride-a-longs on the Department’s Fire and EMS apparatus for approved personnel.

In order to be approved, you must complete the attached paperwork and provide a signed letter from the appropriate authority of your agency, approving your participation in ride-alongs and stating that the agency’s Workers Compensation Insurance will cover you during the ride-along. The final step in the approval process will be a 3-hour ride-along orientation, which will include details of how to schedule your ride-along, appropriate attire, patient confidentiality and Blood Borne Pathogens.

The completed ride-along application, release of liability and your agency’s sponsorship letter should be submitted to Chief Jim Styers at the Fairbanks Fire Department, and scheduling for your orientation will be arranged.

If you have any questions, please contact Chief Styers at (907) 450-6604.
