  • It does work - Tennessee fire fatality rate hits new low

    The Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) announced Monday for the second consecutive year unintentional structure fire fatalities in Tennessee decreased to a new state-record low.

    A total of 72 people died in accidental home fires across the state in 2015, which is down from 76 fatalities in 2014.

    2015 marks the fewest unintentional structure fire fatalities than any year recorded in Tennessee history.

    Both 2014 and 2015 were record-breaking improvements compared to 2013’s total of 100

    Likely had some support from the state government.

    In LA, the State Fire Marshal's office provides smoke detectors for local installation and supports statewide public campaigns. They also provide free training to those doing inspections and fire investigations.

    I know of states that do more, and some that do less.

    I don't think anyone disagrees ... The more you do, the better the results. And the more you do, the better it will be for the community. The question is in many places is do we have the resources to allocate to fire prevention and public education?
    Train to fight the fires you fight.

      Well you know my position. While there are volunteer departments I have no answer for because they are struggling to survive. But in career fire departments with paid firefighters - yes there are resources. The question is how much can get done and that I could not comment on because departments have unique challenges.
