The Chattanooga Fire Department has new methods in place to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

A recently implemented program is already making an impact, loosening the strain on emergency services and getting citizens the help they need, while keeping them from routinely calling 911.

It’s called CFD Connect and it was established in partnership with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s (UTC) Social Work Program.

The program places two social work master’s level interns with firefighters.

The goal is to address high users of non-emergency calls (like medical assists and lift assist calls). We make sure there are services in place for those particular individuals in order to decrease their dependence on the 911 system.

Neighbors helped each other get out of a burning duplex in the Highland Park area Friday night.

It happened just before 7:30 PM in the 1800 block of E 4th Street.

Fire officials say people on one side of the duplex smelled smoke and went outside and saw smoke. They then alerted the people on the other side of the duplex so they could get out safely.

CFD found heavy smoke coming from the residence when they arrived on the scene.

Firefighters got the fire out. Holes were cut in the roof to ventilate the structure.

There were no injuries.

The Red Cross was contacted to assist impacted residents. CPD and HCEMS were also on scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Ochs Highway was shut down at Ochs Extension and Sanders Road during the rescue. Traffic was diverted to Scenic Highway.
