Paramedic On Staff at All Times for Knoxville Fire Department

Posted By News On July 3, 2010 @ 6:24 am In Today’s Local News | Comments Disabled


As of Thursday July 1st, there is a paramedic or EMT on staff at all times at the Knoxville Fire and Rescue Department. Due to an increase in calls this year, Fire Chief Mike Roberts submitted a request to the Knoxville City Council back in May requesting approval of paid part-timers to staff the department during evening and overnight hours; the council unanimously approved the request. Roberts says the additional staff will help his department better serve the Knoxville Community and the projection is that the new part-timers will pay for themselves because they will be able to charge more for the runs they go on.
