Posted 11-09-17.

The City of Sevierville Fire Department would like to invite all residents to the new Fire Department headquarters groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, November 20 @ 2:00PM. The building will be located at 1162 Dolly Parton Parkway, the former site of the Sevierville Water Treatment Plant.

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. Construction is expected to take 12-14 months.
