NOTES: Dollywoods FireChaser Express Heroes Tour continues its journey through Tennessee with its penultimate stop at Kingsport Fire Department Station #2.

The hose, featuring the names of brave firefighters throughout Tennessee, will be dedicated and prominently displayed at Dollywoods newest attraction, FireChaser Express, which opens in March. Firefighters from across the Tri-Cities area are invited to sign the fire hose at the event. Dollywoods vintage 1941 Ford FireChaser Express fire truck also will be at the event.

Additionally, firefighters at the station will read to students from the Palmer Early Learning Center. A representative from the City of Kingsport will present a proclamation in honor of Dolly Partons Imagination Library and the tenth anniversary of the formation of the Sullivan County Imagination Library council.
