Porn star turned EMT could be in trouble over racy past

Harmony Rose appeared in more than 200 pornographic films between 2004 and 2010, is training with Va. rescue squad

By EMS1 Staff

ROANOKE, Va. — A volunteer EMT trainee's previous career as a porn star is attracting the attention of senior officials in Va.

Harmony Rose (born Tracy Rolan), 29, who appeared in more than 200 pornographic films between 2004 and 2010, is training with the Cave Spring Rescue Squad in Roanoke, Va., according to the Huffington Post.

Fire Chief Rich Burch contacted the county attorney when Roanoke Fire & Rescue employees alerted him to Rose's past, said Director of Public Information Teresa Hall.

Attorney Paul M. Mahoney replied in a letter saying that the county does not usually get involved in the decisions of volunteer rescue squads but "anything that results in public ridicule of the volunteer squads... must be avoided."

He also recommended that Chief Burch "supports the decision of the volunteer chief if she decides to terminate the membership of [Rose]."

But nearly all of the 500 or so comments that appear under the story on the reporting TV station's Facebook page support Rose continuing work with the squad.

"It's not like she was doing porn in the squad building," Theodore Hughes said.
