Meeting the Challenge: Hilton, New York's Response to the Threat of Fire was produced by Rochester Images of Rochester Public Library. It was funded by a grant from The New York State Archives and Records Administration for the Village of Hilton (New York) Historian's Office. This pathfinder was researched and written by Elizabeth Spring and Kathryn Heckle.

Special thanks go to: Mary Townsend, Hilton Village Historian, Don Stilson, Assistant Hilton Village Historian and former Hilton fire fighter, and Colleen McBride of Rochester Public Library for their invaluable assistance with this project.

The authors extend a very special thanks to all Hilton firefighters, past and present, for their work throughout the years.
