A representative group of firefighters from all four Chili Fire Companies did a walk-through of the Leisure Living company that specializes in pool equipment this evening.  While the building has been in Chili for years, with a new company moving in there has been many changes to the interior.  It is always important for firefighters to have a good understanding of how a building is laid out and what is stored inside, especially when it is a big warehouse building such as this one.
