EKFD currently responding to possible structure fire on Cove rd.
2018 has been very busy for our small town. Averaging 2 calls a day. So far today we have had 3 calls for service. Currently we have multiple calls going at once, medical aid on one side of town and a fire alarm activation on the other. Crews have been very busy
It has been a tough week or so. Lots of ice and cold.
I would like to thank the East Kingston Police, the Road Agent and his crew as well as the Fire Department.
They all worked a tremendous amount of hours and responded to dozens of calls in the last week alone. Their dedication and efforts are greatly appreciated.
