We can all agree Chicago sports traditions are consistent. The Fire Department is also consistently playing sports for charities.
The Chicago Fire Department has teams that compete in everything from volleyball to bags. A lot of the competitions are friendly rivalries with the Chicago Police Department. Games between us are always played hard, and are always fun for the players, family, friends, fans and sponsors. Police vs Fire typically has a Cubs vs. White Sox atmosphere.
Some games are annual, and some sports are played regularly. Some of the bigger games and events are:
