The Morristown Police Department has enacted their severe weather-snow plan policy. The MPD is urging everyone to avoid an unnecessary travel due to hazardous weather conditions. During this time officers will not be responding to minor traffic crashes; parties involved in a crash not involving injury are asked to exchange information with one another for a report to be done at a later date. The parties involved will have 72 hours from the date of the crash to come to the MPD to have a report made. The MPD will continue to respond to wrecks involving injury.
The police department will also continue to respond to all other emergency calls for service which involve life threatening injury. Other calls may be directed for tele-service reports or delayed response.
The Morristown Fire Department requests that auxiliary fuel sources be checked for proper working condition. The fire department wishes to remind citizens to avoid using outdoor heat sources for indoor heating. If anyone finds themselves without adequate heating they may contact the Morristown-Hamblen County Dispatch Center at 423-585-2701 to be directed to appropriate services.
