I'm on the Smoky Mountain Weekend Committee for my department-Pittman Center VFD (I live in Sevier County). If your department didn't get a packet this year you can contact Rodger Ogle at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can put you on the mailing list for next year. It's always the first weekend in March. I'm not sure if you would want to make the drive, but if you would like to take a look at some fire trucks and equipment we've expanded the vendor program this year. We've gotten committments from Wynn Fire Equipment, Heritage Fire Equipment, and Ferrara Fire on bringing apparatus. Vendors bring rescue tools, helmets, boots, t-shirts, etc... The vendors will be at Sevier County High School this year-much closer to the majority of the students.
