About Us

Firefighter/Paramedic Zachary Womack
I am Zachary Womack. I am a Firefighter/Paramedic in Tennessee. I have been in the fire department since 2000 when I started as an explorer.

I received my basic fire training through the Tennessee Fire and Codes Academy. I have obtained accredited certifications through the Tennessee Commission on Firefighting in Hazmat Awareness, Hazmat Operations, Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Fire Apparatus Operator, and Fire Department Instructor I. I received my EMT and Paramedic training at Tennessee Tech University. 

At home life is simple for me. I have a wonderful loving wife, Andrea, which has been with me and supported me since 2005. I also have a beautiful little girl, Clara. 

Anyway, that’s me, I love my life, love my job, God has really blessed me and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.


Captain Josh Womack
My name is Josh Womack. I am a 911 Dispatcher and a Captain with a Fire Department serving as the Public Education/Information Officer.

I started with the fire department October 1st, 2000. I began helping with public education not long after that. I spent a brief period as Engineer until April 2005, when I made Captain. In 2009 I started working part time in the 911 Center, and took a full time position in June 2011.

My basic firefighting training was done through the Tennessee Fire Service and Codes Enforcement Academy. I also have accredited certifications from the Tennessee Commission on Firefighting. I hold certifications in Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Hazmat Awareness, Hazmat Operations, and Fire Instructor I, as well as many certifications from the Tennessee Fire Academy. I am currently working toward my State level Fire and Life Safety Officer certification.

I am a member of the Tennessee Public Fire Educators Association, and serve on many local committees pertaining to fire education and public information. I am a CPR instructor, and Child Passenger Safety Tech.

I am a 2nd generation firefighter. My dad, Bruce, is currently a Lieutenant/PIO with with Cookeville Fire-Rescue Department. He has 30+ years in the fire and EMS profession. He is the reason I do what I do. What can I say, its in the blood.

When im not at work, im with my family. My wife Shan, and daughter Addie. My wife is also a firefighter for the Murfreesboro Fire-Rescue Department. I try to spend as much time with my brothers, Zach and Tory (sheriff's deputy) as I can. With all 3 of us in the public service field, we are very close and understand what each other is going through when a call goes out.

Thats me in a nutshell. I love being a firefighter and love helping people, whether its from a dispatch console or a fire scene. I have an amazing job and family and I would not change a thing.
