The Gates-Chili Fire Department depends entirely on donations from the neighbors and businesses from our town – without any outside financial assistance. Your donations continue to provide valuable services that preserve lives and protect property.
The Gates-Chili Fire Department is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Smoke and CO2 Detector Program
Our smoke and carbon monoxide detector installation program is fully funded by your tax-deductible contributions and ensures that all of our residents are using these devices to protect their homes and their families. Call 585.426.2720 to learn more.
Gates Fire Explorers
Gates Fire Explorer Post 272 – a Boy Scouts of America "Learning for Life" program – is sponsored by the Gates-Chili Fire Department. This program trains youths (14 to 21 yrs. old) interested in firefighting to assist at working fires and educates our youth on the importance of fire prevention. Do you know a youth that's interested in joining the Explorers Program? Email Dave Hancock to learn more!
