Focus on Home Fire Safety During Fire Prevention Week

Posted 9-29-17

October 8-14 is Fire Prevention Week. The Sevierville Fire Department offers the following information to help keep you safe at home.

In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.

• Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.

• Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.

• Make sure the address/number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.

• Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.

• Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

Fireworks Resources

Posted June 29, 2017

Are you planning to sell fireworks this year? The State Fire Marshal's Office has a reminder about selling fireworks.  Pursuant to state law, it is unlawful for any person to sell fireworks without first getting a permit as an annual retailer or seasonal retailer. Tennessee law does not exempt Tennessee fire departments from this permit requirement. As such, any fire department in the State is required to obtain a permit before selling any fireworks.
