The Chili Fire Department Explorer program is a youth program (ages 14-18) that allows high-school aged teens the opportunity to volunteer and learn about the fire service. Post 546 has been an important part of Chili Fire Department's impact on the community for over 40 years.

  • Ropes and Knots Practice 10-29-16 Before holding their monthly meeting, the Chili FIre Explorers did some ropes and knots practice.  Explorers trained on multiple types of knots and hitches such as the Bowline, Clove Hitch, Butterfly. and Handcuff knot to name a few.  A couple of our explorers who have recently turned 16 took the knowledge they gained from the practice so they could do some of their practical qualifications to get cleared to go on ride-alongs with the firefighters.  All Chili Fire Explorers who are 16 or older who want to go on ride-alongs with the fire department must take written and practical skills exams to show competency.
