Kenbridge Fire Department

A Message From the Chief

Dear Citizens.

     I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the Kenbridge Fire Department website.  We appreciate your interest in our department and welcome your comments.

     The Kenbridge Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department that has been serving the Town of Kenbridge and surrounding areas for over one-hundred years. We have a well trained department. I am extremely proud of each member that we have on our rolls.  The members put in a lot of time in training so that they can do a proficient job to protect you and your property. They also put in a lot of hours in attending meetings, testing the fire department equipment, keeping the equipment clean and in its proper place, and other duties necessary to operate a fire department.

    We would be unable to operate our department, with the equipment that we have, if it were not for the excellent financial support that we receive from our citizens.  We also receive financial support from the Town of Kenbridge and the County of Lunenburg.  We have several fund raising events each year and they are well supported by the people in our area.  We are thankful for that.  Every penny tht we earn in fund raising goes directly into the operation of the department.  This helps us offset insurance, purchase fuel for the trucks, heat the fire station, make payments on fire equipment, purchase turnout gear for members, supply pagers for members, and make repairs to our fire station as needed.

     Again, thank you for visiting our website.  Should you have any questions or comments that our members can not answer, please feel free to contact me.  We are here to serve the citizens of our community and we would be delighted to help you in any way possible.

Sincerely,

Kenbridge Fire Department

Richard W. Harris, Chief
