      Yes Being a Paramedic will help. However I have seen them not hire a few medics. The Background Check is very strenous. They actually send investigators out to your neighbors and contact all your references. If someone is already a PM or an EMT they will not be required to attend the 8 week EMT class at the start of the Academy. What they have you do is Test hose, ladders and run a few errands. After the 8 weeks you will then jump into the fire portion of the Academy.
      The City of Knoxville runs approx 35,000 calls a year between 18 fire stations. We have busy trucks and then trucks that run 3-5 calls a day. We do have ALS Engines and work very closely with Rural Metro EMS. In my opinion you could see the Knoxville/Knox County go to a Metro Government just like Nashville within the next 5-7 years.

        CM do you guys allow ride alongs? Is that through the captain of the station for the shift or battalion chiefs?

          CFD, Yes we do have a ride along program there are a few requirements, You Must be over 18, It must be approved through the Captain, and the Battalion Chief, and you must sign a Waiver releasing all Liability.

                    CMfireguy105 I know you have answered this earlier in this post, but have you heard any updates of possible dates the recruit class will start? I read your earlier post just wondering if there were any changes in the last couple of weeks?

                      question

                      cmfireguy105 I know you answered this question already earlier in the post, but I was wondering if you have heard any updates on possible recruit class start dates? I'm coming from out of state and really don't have the money to keep flying out to knoxville. If they wont be starting a class anytime soon I might not fly out there the first time. I have to borrow money from my mother in law to take a trip there from fl. Any updates if you have them would be much appreciated.

                              i'm sure any time in the armed forces will be a positive experience and look good on a resume...
