Tonight at approximately 7:30 P.M. we were dispatched to a large scale incident with multiple patients at Tradition’s Park due to a storm in the area causing a tent to collapse.
Fortunately, there were not as many injuries as initially reported, but it was still a large scale incident that quickly taxed our resources as a single department. We could not have ran this scene as efficiently without help from Blount County 911, ALEA, EMA, Warrior Fire, Blount EMS, Mt. High Fire, Locust Fork Fire, and Ricetown Fire. Within minutes of the initial dispatch we had crews on the scene able to help individuals, and get them the appropriate care. As always, this is made possible by our citizens who support the department, our fireboard, the supporting agencies who help us, and our own firefighters who work around the clock. We wish to extend a thanks once again to those involved in this incident. ... ExpandHide
