For Immediate Release
New Fire Station Open
Knoxville Fire Department
January 5, 2012 - Mayor Madeline Rogero, Fire Chief Stan Sharp, Councilman Nick Pavlis and several current and retired firefighters helped reopen Fire Station #19 today in an official ribbon cutting.
Ribbon Cutting at Fire Station 19
Because of a large annexation by the city in 1962, Fire Station #19 was built at 6328 Chapman Hwy. to help in aiding the newly acquired area by the city.

Orginal Fire Station 19During the late 1980's fire station #19 was closed and combined with a newly located station #13 at 4701 Chapman Hwy. Since then, the neighborhood surrounding the old station #19 has continued to grow, which brings us to current day.

Seeing a need to serve the medical and fire needs of the growing South Knoxville business and residential community, Chief Sharp along with the approval from the Mayor and City Council, agreed to re-open the recently renovated location.
