Job posting is here:http://www.ucfdtn.com/SOG/SOG/firefighter%20opening.htm

Applications are available from Union City City Hall 731.885.1341 during regular business hours (Central Time).

The Union City Fire Department operates three stations and provides fire, rescue, and first responder EMS services to the City of Union City and surrounding rural territory. Call volume is 1200 calls per year +/-. Shift schedule is 24/48. Cost of living is still low relative to much of the U.S.

Not stated in the posting, but all else being equal, prior paid experience in fire or EMS probably a plus, as is a TN EMT license or ability to obtain through reciprocity.
