During the week of 5/5/2015, the Chili Fire Department took an opportunity to repay little helpers in the Town of Chili. The department put on our first annual adopt a hydrant program in our local elementary schools where 3rd graders adopted hydrant near their home and kept it clear of snow over the winter. Once the snow finally melted a name was chosen from Paul Rd, St. Pius and Brasser Elementary schools and the winner received a ride to school on our Ladder Truck. The firefighters enjoyed doing it as much as the kids and we look forward to an even bigger participation next year.
