Fire Department Schedules Safety Events at Local Schools

Posted 04-18-18.

The City of Sevierville Fire Department will be at two local schools this week to promote safety for our students.

On Wednesday and Thursday, April 18, 19, firefighters will be at the Sevierville Primary School meeting with second grade classes to reinforce fire prevention practices. Firefighters were also at the school last October during Fire Prevention Month. The Fire Safety House will be utilized at this event.

On Friday, April 20, firefighters will be at Sevier County School to conduct a mock vehicle accident involving a drunk driver. Several emergency response agencies will be on hand, including LifeStar Air Ambulance. The purpose of the event is to bring awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving and distracted driving.

SFD Squad 13 Placed Into Service

Posted 04-06 18.

The Sevierville Fire Department recently placed a new truck into service. Squad 13’s primary role is responding to emergency medical calls in the Station 1 coverage area.

The new vehicle is staffed by two medically-trained firefighters with Advanced Emergency Medical Technician or higher certification. Squad 13 is also equipped with vehicle extrication equipment for vehicle crash response as well as a small pressurized firefighting system for extinguishing small brush fires.

“Squad 13 provides a quicker and much more cost effective response to medical emergencies,” Fire Chief Matt Henderson said. “The initial cost is almost 75% less than a new front line engine and will save wear and tear on our fire engines.”
