It has been brought to our attention that rumors are being spread that Engine Co 6 in Coles Point also known to some as the Coles Point Substation is either being shut down or is up for auction sale. There is a misleading sign at the intersection with the wording AUCTION. However this is for a property in Sandy Point. Cople District Fire Department operates both Engine Co 3 in Kinsale and Engine Co 6 in Coles Point. Rest assured that both of these stations are fully operational and here to answer both your Fire as well as EMS needs 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Both stations are staffed with dedicated VOLUNTEER firemen and women as well as EMT's that respond daily to your 911 needs. We are aware of where some of the misleading information is coming from and are working to fix that. But please if you hear this rumor DO NOT spread it any further as it is simply not true. Just as articles have been written about your local rescue squad with false information, it is easy for members of the community to make up things about our department that simply are not true. Cople District has been in the business of putting out fires and saving lives since 1965 and we are here to stay. We are looking for more VOLUNTEERS to join our team as are all local fire departments and rescue squads. But we have a diversly trained group of individuals that are dedicated to solving whatever your 911 need may be. Please if you hear this rumor direct the people to this article. Also if you have any questions or concerns about either of our stations please contact Chief John Butler at (804) 761-1965 or Assistant Chief Todd Padgett at (804) 450-6221. Either of them would be glad to answer any of your questions about the operations of our department. We thank you the community for your support and just remember we will ALWAYS be here when you have to make that 911 call.
