Fire Protection in Lakemoor Hills

Most residents of Lakemoor Hills are not City of Knoxville residents, do not pay city taxes, and therefore do NOT have fire protection unless they subscribe to the service that Rural Metro offers.  At our last homeowners’ meeting we learned that Rural Metro will respond to a fire in our neighborhood whether that family has subscribed to fire protection or not.  If you are a subscriber, the visit is free.  If you do not subscribe, the fee is $1,500 per truck per hour.  Multiple trucks are typically dispatched.  The average cost charged to the homeowner to put out a fire is $8,000.  If you do not subscribe to fire protection, then it is time to do it.  Don’t gamble on never having a visit from the fire department.  That is a costly mistake.  Here is a document that will give you information on their service.rural metro
