Fire Suppression

The City of Alcoa Fire Department (AFD) protects a population of 8,449 citizens covering 14.8 square miles. This is accomplished using three engines, two aerial ladders and six support vehicles.

During 2018, AFD responded to 2,389 emergency incidents. Of those incidents, 64 were structure, vehicle, brush or other fires.
A fleet of fire trucks all parked in a row.
The department is made up of 38 full-time employees consisting of:
  • 33 line personnel
  • One administrative assistant
  • One administrative captain
  • One deputy chief
  • One fire chief
  • One fire marshal
Due to the low number of on-duty (9-per shift) fire personnel, AFD relies on automatic aid (4 personnel from Maryville Fire Department) in order to achieve a positive outcome at structure fires.
