The Nashville Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to Nashville, Tennessee. The department is responsible for an area of 533 square miles (1,380 km2).[1]

History[edit]

The fire department started in May 1807 as a volunteer fire service and became a paid organization on July 24, 1860 with John S. Dashiell as the first chief.[3] Nashville's first motorized fire engine was put into service in 1912. The department currently has thirty-nine stations. In 1974, the Emergency Medical Services Division was added. Until that time, the fire department put out fires and ambulances were provided by funeral homes. All firefighters are now cross trained as EMT's and Paramedics.
