The Chicago Fire cast has added a new name to the show, with their debut set to take place this spring.

The news certainly sends up a bit of a red flag, because this new character is a paramedic.

Does this mean we could see Sylvie Brett or Violet Mikami leave Firehouse 51 and Ambulance 61? We may be getting a little ahead of ourselves, but it wouldn’t be the first time that someone new has worked on that ambulance.

Over the years, Allison Rafferty, Emily Foster, Gabby Dawson, Gianna Mackey, Jessica “Chili” Chilton, Jimmy Borrelli, Leslie Shay, and Peter Mills have served as paramedics at the station (some a bit longer than others).

Who is new Chicago Fire cast member Caitlin Carver?

According to TV Line, Caitlin Carver from The Fosters (as Hayley Heinz) and Dear White People (as Muffy Tuttle) will be joining the Chicago Fire cast as a recurring character for Spring 2022.

Carver is going to play a paramedic named Emma, and the character will make her show debut during an April 2022 episode. The exact date has not yet been revealed, but Emma is going to be appearing in at least a few Chicago Fire Season 10 episodes.

On her list of acting credits, Carver has appeared in small roles for episodes of Glee, Nashville, Parks and Recreation, and a 2016 episode of NCIS (Megan Porter in React). She also played Nancy Kerrigan in the film I, Tonya, and Becca in Paper Towns.

Maybe Emma’s job won’t be directly related to Firehouse 51 at all, but we are going to have to wait a bit longer to find out for sure.
