The city's First Responder Emergency Medical Service provides lifesaving
support for life threatening situations resulting from serious illness
When anyone in the corporate limits of the City of Knoxville should
experience a life-threatening medical emergency, the closest fire department
unit will respond to provide a minimum of pre-hospital basic life support.
Trained KFD personnel provide advanced and basic life support for stabilizing
victims until the ambulance arrives for transport to a health care facility.
