Seven explorers from the Chili Fire Department traveled down to Hudson, NY for the 2016 FASNY Youth Day of Training hosted this year at the City of Hudson Dept. of Fire.  The explorers were bunked in overnight on Thursday at the Hudson Fire Station and the training took place on Friday morning.  Explorers from around New York received training in forcible entry, window bailouts, wall breaching and mask confidence, vehicle extrication, and hose relay competition.  Some of our Chili Fire Explorers received awards in the hose relay competition.  Chili Fire Explorers Hannah Mance and Chris Annucci received 3rd place awards, and Chili Fire Explorer Kristin French received a 1st place award.  After completion of training, lunch was hosted at the FASNY Firemen's Home and the day completed with a quick tour of the FASNY Museum of Firefighting.  Great job to all the Explorers who attended this year's training day.  Click on the photo below for more pictures from FASNY Youth Day or go to our photo gallery page.  Do not forget to check out our Facebook page for plenty more pictures and videos from the event.
