At approximately 5:30 P.M. on Monday, July 24, 2017 the Cumberland County Rescue Squad responded to a fall incident at Ozone Falls off Highway 70 East. The patient was reported to have received multiple injuries after slipping while attempting to traverse the rocky trail to the base of the 110 foot waterfall.

The Rescue Squad arrived on scene, and with mutual aid provided by Crossville City Fire Department & Cumberland County Fire Department, they built a rope system to carry the patient over the treacherous terrain, up to the road where the ambulance awaited. Patient was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

The rescue operation lasted 2.5 hours with 19 squad members responding.
