The fire stations shall be locked between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. each day to prevent the general public from entering. The locking and unlocking will be accomplished by the membership of the Owego Fire Department.
Fire Department members and their guests will be the only persons allowed in any station during the time the doors are locked. A member having guests will be responsible for the behavior of his guests.

The general public will be allowed to enter any station which is unlocked between the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Entrance is allowed for review of our fine fire-fighting equipment.
In the event that problems should occur between the Owego Police Department and members of the Owego Fire Department or their guests while they are in any fire station, the Police Department is to notify a Chief of the Owego Fire Department immediately.
