The St. Augustine Fire Department and Benevolence Foundation will host their 9th Annual Firefighter Chili Cookoff at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, December 7, 2019. Admission is free, and chili sample tickets are available for a small fee. Proceeds will go towards Hoods for Heroes, a non-profit organization that seeks to provide firefighters with new hoods that will give them much better protection against toxic particles.
The Chili Cookoff begins at 2:00 p.m. Guests can sample an array of traditional and alternative-style chili made by firefighters from around the state. There will be plenty of activities for the whole family at the event, including fire extinguisher and jaws of life demonstrations, as well as live fire simulations with fire engines, ladders, and ambulances on site. Visit here for more information about this event.
Hoods for Heroes (H4H) is dedicated to providing barrier hoods for firefighters. These new hoods protect the thin skin around the face, neck, and throat from carcinogens. Visit here for more information and to make a donation.
