Glade Fire Department needs volunteer firefighters


CROSSVILLE — Thanks to the first volunteer fire department organized in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin, the volunteer fire department was born in 1736 – after some 275 years later volunteer firefighters are still responding to fires and other emergencies nationally.

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to make a commitment to our community.

The Fairfield Glade Fire Department has openings for new firefighters, no experience necessary. We train all new firefighters at our own training center here on site. We have a two story 1,600 sq ft container and a live fire burn container that we use for training. We meet all the requirements of the NFPA and the Tennessee Fire commission. We also utilize the Tennessee Fire Academy in Bell Buckle TN for specialized training.

There are some benefits with joining and becoming a volunteer in our community. If you are interested in learning more about the Fairfield Glade Fire Department, please contact Chief Robb by phone 931-484-3801 or by email for an appointment,
