The Sevierville Fire Department (SFD) has lifted the temporary ban on open burning in the City. The ban has been in effect due to extremely dry conditions and increased fire risk in the area. Fire officials will continue monitoring conditions.
Citizens are also reminded that they are required to obtain a permit prior to beginning any open burning in the City of Sevierville. Permit information and application instructions are available at http://seviervilletn.org/index.php/fire-prevention/422-open-burning-permit.html; or call 865-868-1709.
National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 20–26, 2019, and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is teaming up with the Sevierville Police Department to help empower parents to discuss the importance of driving safety with their young drivers. The week is a perfect time to begin — and continue — this conversation, and to remind parents not to hand over the car keys until their teen knows the rules of the road.
