ABOUT THE STATION

Serving Our Community

Chilson Volunteer Fire Department serves the Chilson community, a 30-square-mile area that also includes Putts Pond and a large portion of Eagle Lake. Chilson is a part of the Town of Ticonderoga, and its fire district includes extensive tracts of state-owned land. The department is staffed and equipped to provide fire prevention and fire protection as well as rescue services including vehicle extrications. Chilson VFD also provides mutual aid to neighboring fire departments, responds to weather emergencies, clears downed trees from roadways, and assists home-bound residents during power outages and other emergencies. The Chilson Community Center at the fire station is owned by the department; its meeting hall, playing fields and picnic grounds host many community events. For more information, the public is invited to “Like” the department on Facebook at “Chilson Volunteer Fire Department.” New members are always welcome, in both firefighting and non-firefighting roles. Interested community residents are invited to drop in to one of the department’s monthly membership meetings on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the fire house: 60 Putts Pond Road, Ticonderoga, New York 12883.

HOW TO PROPERLY USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER

P.A.S.S. the Fire Extinguisher
Using a fire extinguisher can be intimidating, especially if you do not know the proper way to use it. Lucky for you, there is a very useful anagram to help you remember the four easy steps.  
Pull: Pull the pin. There is a small pin that prevents the fire extinguisher from accidentally being used, all you have to do is pull it out and continue on to the next step.
Aim: Aim the nozzle of the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire.
Squeeze: Squeeze the lever you just pulled the pin out of. Remember to squeeze it slowly and evenly, so it is as effective as possible.
Swipe: Swipe from side to side to cover all areas the fire may have spread to.
