Cleaning Day at the Station 2016

Members of the Department came out for an annual Cleaning Day at the Chester Fire Station! A thorough cleaning of the station was done, above and beyond the daily routines. Members and family members came out to assist and the day ended with a BBQ gathering. It was a good, fun day and thank you to all who helped!
