“Get Alarmed Tennessee” Smoke Alarm Program Has Now Saved More Than 100

Begun in 2012, the Smoke Alarm Program Has Helped Improve State’s Fire Safety

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) announces that smoke alarms installed as part of the “Get Alarmed Tennessee” program have now contributed to helping save over 100 lives since the program’s inception in 2012.

The “Get Alarmed” program’s success will be featured next week as part of presentations given by the SFMO during the National Association of State Fire Marshals annual conference in Nashville. The annual event will be held in the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in downtown Nashville.

Since its inception, SFMO and Tennessee fire service partners have distributed more than 81,000 smoke alarms for free across Tennessee in high-risk areas. Figures have recently confirmed the 101st saved life. The installation program along with fire prevention education, fewer fires and other factors helped play a role in reducing Tennessee’s fire mortality rate in 2014.

“By comparing where ‘Get Alarmed’ smoke alarms were installed against fire incident reports, we can track the program’s success and effectiveness,” said Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance Deputy Commissioner Gary West. “’Get Alarmed Tennessee’ perfectly fits our mission to reduce fire deaths. Going forward, we will continue to focus our resources and help save more lives and protect more property.”

The National Association of State Fire Marshals conference kicks off at 9 a.m. Monday.

State Fire Marshall Warns Campers About Carbon Monoxide Dangers

NASHVILLE – Even when enjoying the great outdoors in Tennessee, RV owners should be wary of the dangers that can arise from carbon monoxide in and around tents and RVs.

 

Often called “the silent killer,” carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless gas created when fuels (such as kerosene, gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. Carbon monoxide can result from a number of camping equipment, such as barbecue grills, portable generators or other fuel-powered devices.

 

Tragedy struck four years ago in Clarksville, Tenn., when five campers died in their sleep when fumes from a generator seeped into their rented RV. The RV’s carbon monoxide detector, which could have prevented the deaths, was found to have no batteries.

 

As a result of this incident, rented RVs are now required by Tennessee law to have a functioning carbon monoxide detector before being leased for use. The law also holds RV rental companies responsible if they fail to document and test the CO detectors in their leased vehicles. (This law only applies to RV rentals.) It is still imperative that RV owners stay diligent in testing and changing the batteries of the carbon monoxide detectors in their own campers.

 

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may include headache, nausea and drowsiness. Extremely high levels of poisoning can be fatal, causing death within minutes. Anyone who suspects they are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning should immediately move to a fresh air location and call 9-1-1 or the fire department.

 

Important Carbon Monoxide-Poisoning Prevention Tips

• Only use barbecue grills outside, away from all doors, windows, vents and other shelter openings. Lit or smoldering barbecue grills should never be taken inside a home, tent, or RV.

• Never use a fuel-powered lantern, heater or portable camping stove inside a home, tent or camper/RV.

• Use portable generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas away from all doors, windows, vents and other building openings to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the home.

• Install and maintain CO alarms inside homes, campers, and RVs to provide early warning of carbon monoxide.
