(MURFREESBORO) Rutherford County Fire-Rescue is adding another class of firefighters to protect the community. 

In addition to the training here in Murfreesboro, hands-on classes have been completed by many of the new firefighters at the Tennessee Fire Service and Codes Enforcement Academy on Unionville-Deason Road, just off highway 231-S. 


The Rutherford County Fire Rescue Department is an all-hazards organization serving the fourth largest County in the state of Tennessee. 

Chief Larry Farley notes, "We are a progressive, citizen-first Department with highly trained personnel."

Farley's leadership skill was noticed in the capitol last month when he was appointed to the Tennessee Homeland Security Council.

Prior to 2010, fire protection in Rutherford County outside municipal city limits was provided by 11 all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit fire departments. 

The mission of the Rutherford County Fire Rescue Department is to provide the highest quality of services to residents and visitors through commitment to training, leadership and professionalism with integrity, teamwork and dedication.
