About the FDNY Fire Zone

The FDNY Fire Zone is New York City’s state-of-the-art fire-safety learning center. At the Fire Zone, you can climb on a realistic fire truck, try on bunker gear, meet a firefighter, and learn how to crawl through a smoke-filled hallway.

The Fire Zone gives visitors a first-hand experience of what to do in a fire emergency through a variety of hands-on exhibits and multimedia presentations, including a simulated fire scene.

Fire Simulator

At the heart of the Fire Zone experience is the innovative fire simulator that utilizes special effects and multimedia to help teach visitors about fire safety and what to do in case of a fire emergency. A firefighter and facilitator guide visitors through the interactive presentation. Visitors leave the Fire Zone with materials necessary to eliminate fire hazards in their own homes and to create escape plans for their families.

The presentation is recommended for children five years old and up.


The FDNY Fire Zone is located at 61 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10020.
