Mission Statement

The Blair Volunteer Fire Department (BVFD) was established in 1974 and began providing fire protection to the non-incorporated area in the second civil district of Roane County. The department responds to all fires, motor vehicle accidents, rescues, emergency medical calls, and public assist calls. The department operates from two stations, Station 1 is located at 1911 Old Harriman Highway, Oliver Springs, Tennessee and Station 2 is located at 655 Clax Gap Road, Harriman, Tennessee. The primary response area is sixty-two (62) square miles with a permanent resident population of 9,500. The BVFD gives mutual aid support to the cities of Oliver Springs, Harriman, Kingston, and Oak Ridge, as well as the other four volunteer departments in Roane County. In 1989, BVFD created an EMS First Responder program with Anderson County EMS and now has established the same program with the Roane County EMS. The EMS program has allowed a higher level of emergency care for the involved communities. Mutual aid services are also provided to the Marlow VFD in Anderson County along with Anderson County Ambulance Service and to the neighboring Volunteer Departments in Morgan County. A common Response plan was signed between Oliver Springs Fire Department and Blair VFD on 05-06-10. This agreement has been a great benefit to the communities and departments.
