Chief's Corner

As a reminder, please remember that setting off fireworks of any kind is illegal in Spring City. Possession of fireworks is also illegal.

Because of the hot temperatures and low humidity, wild land fuels are at a critical state and are prime for field, brush and grass fires. Please be extra cautious with anything flammable, or sparking which includes shooting.

Remember that major fires, like those in Gatlinburg Tennessee last year started with a small fire. In that fire several lost their lives. Many lost their homes, dozens were injured and the fire destroyed millions of dollars in property.

It can happen here. Please note that Spring City has many lots and properties that have not been mowed, or cleared of quick burning fuels. Ordinance requires owners, and residents to clear and cut weeds to the street and clean-up any fire hazards. Noxious weeds are defined as a nuisance and the law sets property owners and occupants responsible for what happens as a result of their property.
