Baldwin Honored as Firefighter of the Year 
Master Firefighter Kevin D. Baldwin honored today as KFD's 2017 Firefighter of the Year.

Congratulations to Master Firefighter Kevin D. Baldwin, honored today as KFD’s 2017 Firefighter of the Year. 

In April 2017, Baldwin helped drag a man away from a burning tanker truck filled with 8,000 gallons of ethanol. He then diverted traffic and provided medical care.

Baldwin, a 17-year KFD veteran, works out of the Bearden Fire Station No. 18 on Weisgarber Road.

Because of his quick action, and the efficiency and skill of our First Responder firefighters, the truck cab fire was contained before things could get worse. And because Baldwin luckily was the first on the scene, the truck driver was rescued and then rendered medical care.

Congratulations, Kevin, and thank you for your years of service with the Knoxville Fire Department.
