Who ya gonna call?
Let's just say, hypothetically speaking of course, that a person was going to make a trip into the park for a day of solo fly fishing. Being a cautious and considerate sort, he lets the homefolks know where he's going, which stream(s) he will be on, and when he expects to be home. Unfortunately, something bad happens and he gets injured or otherwise stranded away from his vehicle and in a spot with no cell phone reception. Since he didn't check in by the designated time, family members prepare to alert the authorities and start the search. But wait! Which authorities should be contacted and at what numbers? Is there an emergency number for the park? Not that I could find on their website. Would you be better served to call the local sheriff's office? Blount County or Sevier County (on the TN side)?
So, if someone goes missing in the park, who do you call to get them found?
Fly fishing - it's cheaper than a bass boat!
