The Chilson Volunteer Fire Company has elected officers for 2012. Elected were, front, First Lieutenant Jake O'Hara, Third Assistant and Safety Officer Chief Casie Hunsdon; back, Chief Steve Hunsdon, Second Assistant Chief Mike Trybendis and Captain Cody Duval.
The Chilson Volunteer Fire Department has 44 members including 20 who are qualified active firefighters and a growing number of junior firefighters.
The department covers a 30-square-mile area that also includes Putts Pond and a large portion of Eagle Lake. Its fire district includes large tracts of state-owned land, and Chilson firefighters respond to brush fires as well as structure fires.
The department also responds during weather emergencies, clears downed trees from roadways, and even provides emergency services to home-bound residents during power emergencies.
Phelps said this event is a great way for the community to come, support their department and have fun enjoying the company of their neighbors.
