Who is Cole Robertson?

Cole Roberson is the father of Lindsey Robertson, the girl who is saved by Paul during the ice storm. When a fiery ice storm hits Austin, a safety camp gets collapsed, trapping Lindsey Robertson, a volunteer who was working in the camp. Paul tries his best to rescue Lindsey but gets trapped as well. While awaiting firefighters to rescue them, Paul takes care of Lindsey risking his own life. Finally, Mateo and Judd succeed in rescuing Paul and Lindsey from the debris of the collapse.

As Paul gets recovered in the hospital, Lindsey’s parents come to meet him to express their gratitude for saving their daughter. Cole, Lindsey’s father, brings several gifts to Paul, who gets perplexed by the unexpected arrival of Lindsey’s father. When Cole offers to buy Paul an expensive luxury car, he dismisses the offer with the help of Judd. However, Paul may have reached out to Cole to redirect his generosity to funding Station 126 rather than accepting individual gifts. Cole, grateful to fund the firefighters who saved his daughter from death, becomes Marjan’s donor by transferring more than the required money.

On the day of 126’s demolition, Owen and others arrive at the station to witness the knocking down. Right before the workers proceed with the demolition, Marjan gets a notification that her request is fully funded by an unknown Cole Robertson. Cole’s generosity to fund the station by buying the property and his magnanimity to serve the firefighters who saved his daughter save Station 126 from destruction. Cole’s donation becomes effective when Billy stands away from the reopening of the station. The donation Cole makes not only rescues the station but also binds the family of 126 together from scattering into four directions.
