Niles Firefighters Honored

Village passes proclamation in preparation for department's 100-year anniversary.


Compared to today, fire-fighting was rudimentary in 1912. That, however, is when the got its start, in the form of a state charter on Feb. 19.

The Niles Village Board issued a proclamation at its Tuesday meeting to mark the upcoming centennial.

The proclamation touched on some highlights in the department's history, including its seven initial members, its transition to a full-time department in 1953, the start of paramedic service in 1974 and the five fire chiefs since the department went full-time.

Mayor Robert Callero proclaimed that Feb. 19, 2012 marks the beginning of the Village of Niles Fire Department's 100th Anniversary Year.

Nice to see the department members who we seldom know about or encounter in the news. They are important for our lives, safety, security and property. The date of the 100th Department Borthday (February 19) is coincidentally the feast day of Saint Conrad of Piacenza who had his own problems because of fires.
