Prohibit the discharging of FIREWORKS AND OPEN BURN BAN

After much consideration and discussion with my staff, I have decided to prohibit the discharging of fireworks inside the City of Portland until further notice. This will coincide with the current open burn ban. We assess multiple resources daily to monitor the fire risk in our area. Portland did not get the rainfall this past weekend that was forecasted. Our area has been unusually dry for this time of year. The Nashville region has only received 0.88 inches of rainfall for the month of June, well below the normal average. By comparison, June 2021 Middle TN received 2.21 inches of precipitation. With the dry conditions, lower humidity, and expected wind conditions, our area is currently at a high risk for fire danger. We will continue to monitor and access the risk. There is a slight rain chance for our area this coming weekend. Please, continue to follow our social media posts for any updates. ~ Portland Fire Chief
