Chatham Volunteer Fire & Rescue, has been utilizing the park for water rescue training for approximately 19 years according to Dave Nagel, a department member. The Cooper and Pierce families have been very gracious, in allowing Chatham Fire & Rescue to use their facilities for this very important training. The Department would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their many years of service to the Chatham Community. Check out the Pier-Lon Park website for additional information at
