The Engine Company Joins Medic 40 which went into service in February 2023

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 16, 2023) – The Nashville Fire Department placed Engine Company 40 into service on Thursday, November 16, 2023.

 

The addition of Engine Company 40 increases the fire response capability for the Hermitage area, and Engine Company 40 is available to respond as needed throughout Metro Nashville Davidson County.

 

Engine Company 40 joins Medic 40 which went into service in February 2023. This addition brings Station #40 up to a fully staffed and functioning Fire Station.

 

Fire Station #40 is located at 4031 Plantation Drive, Hermitage TN 37076. It is the former Fire Station #32. Metro Nashville built a new Fire Station #32 located at 4248 Andrew Jackson Parkway, Hermitage, TN 37076 in 2020.

 

NFD renovated Fire Station #40 prior to opening by upgrading the flooring, kitchen, adding new furniture and other supplies for the personnel assigned to the fire station.

 

“Nashville continues to grow as does our call volume,” Director Chief William Swann said. “The Nashville Fire Department is committed to growing when and where we can to better service our community. The addition of Engine Company 40 makes Fire Station #40 a new fire station in our department.”

 

The addition of the Engine Company 40 also increases NFD’s emergency medical services coverage because all NFD Firefighters are EMTs and many are paramedics.
