Columbia Fire & Rescue's Ride-Along Program gives citizens of all ages an opportunity to observe and participate in department activities. After the appropriate documents are filled out and returned to our administrative office, participants will be asked to select a day that works best for them to begin their ride-along with CFR. The shift chief on that day will then contact the participant to confirm a time. There is no limit as to how often participants can ride-along with CFR. Paperwork is required to be filled out, signed, and submitted each time.
