The Chili Fire Department is hosting a
informational seminar on April 23 & 24 to coincide with FASNY's annual
Recruit NY. It will be held at Chili Fire Department Company #1, 3231 Chili
Avenue, Rochester, NY 14624. The event will go from 11:00am-4:00pm both days.
The event is for anyone age 14 or
older that is interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter. We will
have firefighters present to speak with anyone that has any questions about the
Chili Fire Department. Those that visit are also invited to try several
duties performed by firefighters.
Teenagers that are 14 and finished with the 8th
grade are welcome to join our Explorer Program. Anyone 18 or older can join the
department to become a firefighter.
Not every firefighter has to go inside burning
buildings. We also need members to driver the apparatus and assist in the
operations conducted outside as well.

in to any of our firehouses Monday nights at 6:30pm or visit our website www.chilifire.org for more

must be completed first. We have about
1,000 calls in Chili and only a small fraction are actual fires We respond to
car accidents, storm related calls, automatic alarms and some medical
calls. There is a ton to do without ever
going into a burning building. Each
recruit’s training is monitored to see how they progress and their comfort
level before doing anything beyond capabilities. Do I drive the firetruck? Eventually, yes. There is a training program for those that
want to drive. What are the qualifications to join? You must be 18 years of age and pass the
physical. You will be expected to
