The Karns Volunteer Fire Department has been proudly
serving an area of 65 square miles in four communities in Northwest Knox County since 1978. There are four fire stations strategically located in Karns, Ball Camp, Hardin Valley and Solway,
all on the outskirts of Knoxville, Tennessee. We provide fire protection, emergency medical first-response, hazardous materials response, rescue support, non-emergency public assists and public
education for over 40,000 residents. We have occasionally received grants and disbursements by the county and state but we
receive no tax dollars for funding of the Fire Department.
Subscriptions are due in January of each year. You may also pay for subscription services online at any time here.
Memberships will be mailed the week before Christmas and are due January 31, 2013. Please note the new pricing structure beginning in 2013 is $.08/square foot (8 cents) up from $.07/square foot.
