The Fire Suppression Bureau has been dedicated to its profession of protecting Nashville since 1807. The service began with volunteers and transitioned into a paid profession in 1860. This bureau encompasses more than just firefighting, it is also responsible for specialty rescue as well as medical first response.
Nashville Fire Department staffs 39 fire stations throughout Davidson County. Due to having large volumes of medical responses, each apparatus is equipped for initial immediate on-scene treatment.
