Seymour Volunteer Fire Department
Dedicated to a better, safer community.
The department serves over 20,000 homes (26,000 people), 200 business, 70 churches, 2 private schools, 8 public schools and 1 university (with 400+ on-campus residents) spread across three Tennessee counties, Blount, Knox and Sevier. The total response area is approximately 95 square miles. In 1971, we responded to 24 emergency calls. In 2010 we responded to over 1700 calls of which 68% were medical or rescue, 21% were fire, 5% Haz-Mat and 6% service calls.
All emergency services are free of charge, but we ask homeowners to donate 1/10 of 1% of the cost of their home and/or business, or by multiplying the square footage of the home or business by 10 cents (1200 square foot house = $120) We have bi-annual mail out for donations and an annual boot drive to collect funds for new medical equipment, vehicles and personal protective equipment. Currently 22% of the homes are donating and the average contribution is $38.00 The current budget is approximately $400,000.
