Despite above average rainfall this winter, construction of Sevierville’s new Main Fire Station continues to move forward. Although contractors were forced to excavate saturated soils and backfill with gravel in the area of the building foundation, footings are now 100% complete and the building foundation (slab) should be finished the first week of April, weather permitting.
New Headquarters Information
The new headquarters will provide 24-hour staffing of six firefighters, one engine and an array of technical rescue equipment. The estimated cost of the 17,000 square foot facility is $6.5 million.
The station’s primary response area will be east Sevierville into downtown, and it will provide a significant reduction in response times for east Sevierville.
The headquarters will be home to all Fire Department administrative staff and include a training classroom. Also, a museum will be located in the lobby area to house Sevierville’s first fire engine and other historical SFD items.
