Passing of Larry Griffin

We are sad to announce the passing of Larry Griffin. Larry was a true EMS pioneer and one of the founding father’s of TASA. He was recently featured in a Zoom presentation about the history of EMS and TASA at the TASA Leadership Conference. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and staff at Crockett County EMS.
It is with a heavy heart that we let you all know that our beloved founder and father of TN EMS has passed away. Larry Griffin’s influence is widely felt across our great state and when the history of Tennessee EMS is written, it must include the name Larry Griffin. Thank you Larry for your many years of sacrificial service to Tennesseans and especially Crockett Countians.
