The Fire Department is charged with the protection of and/or the minimization of any impact to our citizens, visitors, and environment from the results of uncontrolled fire and/or disasters, either natural or man-made.
In addition to the traditional duties of fire suppression, fire prevention and public education, we also provide plans review, codes enforcement and inspections. We provide the community with a Tennessee Department of Health approved Basic Trauma Life Support (BTLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) responder program which operates under the authority of the Sevier County Emergency Medical Director.
The Sevierville Fire Department's ISO rating is 3/3X/10 which places the Fire Department in the top 3% of communities nationwide* and the top 3% in Tennessee*.
A permit is required for open burning in accordance with Section 7-102 of the Sevierville Municipal Code. All open burning sites must be inspected prior to burning. Permits are granted with the conditions as listed.
Permits are available Monday through Friday between 8-5.
UPDATE Posted 9-7-17
City staff met yesterday with the architect and construction manager at risk to discuss the project budget and timetable. They plan to meet again in the next two weeks, after which we hope to provide an estimated construction schedule.
