Going with tags big chili cook-off, Denver, Emergency service, firefighters, Fort Collins Colorado, High Park Wildfire, Larimer County Colorado, Mountain, Rocky Mountains, volunteer firefighters on 06-18-2012 by thebigchilicookoffevergreen With the High Park fire still raging, temperatures forecast to hit 100 in Denver today, extremely dry conditions and a potentially scary fire season still looming before us, we want to say:
To top it off, our firefighters frequently pay for their gear out of their own pockets. So The Big Chili was born, and over the years has raised tens of thousands of dollars for our fire departments. We will continue to raise funds for these selfless men and women, to ensure that our departments are well-funded and adequately equipped, and that the volunteers are fully trained, so when the moment comes we will have the best fire departments in the country.Please mark your calendar to join us on September 9, 2012. It will be a fantastic day, filled with friendly competition, good food and great music. But most important, it is a tangible way to say Thank You to our volunteer firefighters.
