HISTORIC CFD FIRE STATION 6 CLOSED AFTER ASBESTOS SCARE
Updated On: Jul 19, 2012

Firefighters from the Cannon Street Fire Station, home to Engine Co. 6 and Battalion Chief 3, have been relocated to the Coming Street Fire Station (Engine Co. 15 & Ladder Co. 4) and the fire station has been closed, due to an asbestos scare. On Wednesday, July 18th, city workers were doing repairs in the day room of the 124-year old fire station and during the demo work, came across what appeared to be asbestos. The firefighters that were working in the station, at the time, requested that all work be stopped immediately because they were concerned about the risk of asbestos being stirred up after material that was uncovered and cut through, resembled the dangerous, cancer-causing substance. The firefighters then notified the proper channels within the fire department, as well as the Charleston Firefighters Association, in order to get the situation addressed.
