Two new members have joined the Knoxville Fire and Rescue Department. Nick Hoover and Jason Everly’s appointments were approved by the City Council at their meeting this week.

Both men, along with several other firefighters from the area will participate in an EMT basic course this summer in Knoxville. Fire Chief Mike Roberts says the class will begin May 28th and be held for 8 hours each Saturday until August 6th.

The class will be taught by Knoxville Fire and Rescue Department member Lee Richardson who’s primary job is teaching such courses at Mercy College.
