First Responder Program
Are you a resident of Fulton County, KY or South Fulton, TN with an EMT certification? The service is striving to build the First Responder Program in an effort to provide better care to our service communities.
When call volume is high and service requests of serious nature demand quick attention, we need access to trained medical personnel who can arrive on scene quickly. First Responders will also be utilized for sporting and special events. If you have an interest in serving the KenTenn community as a First Responder, please contact us.
