To Seymour Volunteer Fire Department Chief John Linsenbigler, these everyday heroes save lives through their collective efforts, and tonight’s recognition ceremony — of Sevier County Ambulance paramedic Rod Dykes and EMT Bryson Dykes; Seymour first responders Chris Harrington, Chandler Viscardis and Adam Linsenbigler (the chief’s son); Blount County 911 dispatcher Charity Gentry; and Blount-based AMR paramedic Nelson Fields and EMT Josh Williams — is a way of giving a little credit to those who answer calls at any time of the day or night without expectation of it.
