Fire Service


Fire protection in unincorporated areas of Williamson County, including the towns of Nolensville and Thompsons Station, is provided by six volunteer departments consisting of 14 stations.  Williamson Fire-Rescue, the partnership between the volunteer fire departments and Williamson County Government, ensures that those who work, live, and play in Williamson County are served and protected by a professional, proficient, and progressive fire service system.


Williamson County has many opportunities for you to serve and participate through the volunteer fire departments.

Volunteers are welcome from all walks of life and from all local areas, to include surrounding counties and our incorporated cities. We need volunteers with various types of knowledge, skills and abilities to participate, so no matter your experience, you can make a difference. In addition, the life skills you will learn as a volunteer firefighter are invaluable.

TRAINING – Firefighting and Emergency Medical

To become a volunteer firefighter and/or medical responder requires a commitment and dedication over the course of four months for both tracks. For volunteers with no prior firefighting experience you will start with 88 hours of basic firefighter training and this takes two months to complete. If you are only interested Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) training this course is 60 hours and is taught over a 2 month period. Not all departments allow EMR responders only but we can find one that best fits your volunteer goals.
All required training is provided at no cost to you. Ongoing training is also required along with standby hours at stations.
After completion of basic training volunteers will also have opportunities to enhance their skills and assume more responsibilities such as driver, engineers and leadership roles within the organization.
The joint mission of the Williamson County Emergency Management Agency and Williamson County Office of Public Safety is assisting in the administrative, planning, and response aspects of Williamson County's fire protection. Fire protection in rural Williamson County is provided through joint collaboration of six not for profit 501(c)3 all volunteer organizations. Fire Protection for the cities of Brentwood, Fairview, Franklin, and Spring Hill is provided through their respective departments. Williamson County fire and rescue organizations and the city fire departments work as a county wide fire and rescue system to provide comprehensive fire and rescue services to the citizens of Williamson County.
