Firefighter And ParamedicNashville

While Nashville boasts one of the country’s most dynamic music recording and publishing industries, the city is much more than its nickname may indicate. Dozens of business sectors put Nashville on the map: health care, traditional manufacturing, technology-savvy entrepreneurship, logistics and tourism. Nashville is the state’s largest metropolitan area and the most urbanized of the region’s 10 counties. Davidson County in 1963 became one of the first in the United States to consolidate its local governments and thus create a unified metro government. This groundbreaking government strategy is still a national model and makes life in Nashville just a little bit simpler.  

Since 1860, Nashville has grown from six square miles to 533 square miles. The Fire/EMS Bureau includes 6 Assistant Chiefs, 26 District Chiefs, and 165 fire companies operating on three shifts with approximately 900 employees. The Bureau has six (6) divisions, Fire/EMS Division, USAR/Technical Rescue Division, Special Hazards/Water Rescue Division, Health and Safety Division, Fire/EMS Response Division, Research and Inventory Division and the Fire/Medical Operations Division. 

The Fire/Medical Operations Division is responsible for all medical functions within the Fire/EMS Bureau. The medical operations assistant chief acts as liaison to the medical director as well as quality assurance and training coordinator. He coordinates efforts for 90 advanced life support paramedics staffing 10 advanced life support engine companies and 800 emergency medical technicians staffing 45 basic life support companies

Firefighter And ParamedicMemphis

The Memphis Fire Department provides fire suppression, technical/special rescue, and EMS services to approximately 300,000 residents. Located on the Mississippi River, Memphis is home to a diverse mix of industry, neighborhoods, music, and recreational opportunities. 

Comprised of 55 stations and more than 1,700 personnel, the Memphis Fire Department is a progressive, visionary, team-oriented public safety agency going far beyond fire suppression. The Special Operations Response Team (SORT) is comprised of a group of over 90 firefighters who receive extensive training in Haz-Mat and technical rescue techniques. This very qualified team of individuals continually trains for mitigating incidents involving hazardous materials and technical rescue situations, including advanced rope procedures, confined space entry, trench rescue and structural collapse. SORT also supports local industries by assisting them with emergency planning and participating in various drills and training exercises. 

The Memphis Fire Department serves as the sponsoring agency for Tennessee Task Force-I, the Federal Urban Search and Rescue team of Memphis and Shelby County. This team consists of 186 volunteers from the Shelby County area who have been trained to respond to natural and man-made disasters. The ability to meet the Federal requirement of having 86,000 pounds of equipment and 62 highly trained individuals out of town on six hours notice, allows TNTF -1 to be one of only 28 FEMA sponsored heavy rescue teams in the nation. 

The City of Memphis entered the new millennium with the opening of a new state-of-the-art fire training campus and academy, The Chester Anderson Fire Campus. Over the past 42 years, over 6,300 recruits and countless in-service hours have been spent training firefighters at the armor training center. The MFD, one of the top ranked and largest Fire and EMS departments in the country, now has a facility and campus equal to their mission and needs. 

The Memphis Fire Department’s Emergency Medical Services began in 1966 with a fleet of eight emergency vehicles and averaged approximately 8,000 runs during its first years of service. There are now more than thirty ambulances making over of 90,000 ambulance calls a year with more than 55,000 transports.
