Site Overview

Located in Kinsale, Virginia, Cople District Volunteer Fire Department operates two stations in Westmoreland County. We designed a responsive website for the department including these features:

  • Staff Availability - A list of available responders updated in real-time, displayed on the website and on a TV located in their day room. Available responders have the ability to mark as responding to calls as they are dispatched.
  • Dispatch Alert - Real-time notification of 911 calls as they are dispatched via their mobile app ("CDVFD Pager," available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store), text message, and by phone. Calls are also added to their website automatically where they can be linked to news posts.
