Governor Declares May “Putting Investors First” Month

Governor Bill Haslam has proclaimed May 2015 “Putting Investors First’ Month as a way to recognize the importance the investment profession as foundation of a strong and growing state economy. The proclamation acknowledges the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Societies in Tennessee for their commitment to excellence in the investment profession and for being champions for ethical behavior in investment markets.

The CFA Society of Nashville is the leading association of local investment professionals.  Their mission is to enable members to be leaders in the middle Tennessee investment community by promoting the value of the CFA designation and facilitating the exchange of ideas and resources among members and with the public.

“Putting Investors First” Month is the beginning of the campaign by the CFA Society of Nashville to celebrate the independent member society’s 50 years in the city, culminating with the Future of Finance Celebration to be held in July. The theme of the celebration will be to highlight the importance of professionals and regulators working together to protect the interests of the individual investor.  As part of the celebration, the Society will be raising donations to support two important financial literacy organizations in Tennessee: Rock the Street, Wall Street™ and the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission.

Rock The Street, Wall Street™ promotes careers in finance to high school girls. The Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission is a program of the Tennessee Treasury Department with a mission to equip Tennesseans with the knowledge to make sound financial decisions. These two organizations are focused on raising the next generation to be educated and informed investors. For more interest in the CFA Society of Nashville, visit CFASociety.org/Nashville.


NASHVILLE—The state veterinarian is advising horse owners of four confirmed cases of Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) in West Tennessee.

Four horses stabled at three locations in Henderson County recently tested positive for EIA. A second round of screening confirmed the positive results. State officials are now testing additional horses that stabled with or live near the infected horses.

EIA is a viral disease most commonly transmitted by biting insects. At this time, there is no vaccine or treatment. Although an infected horse can run a low-grade fever or become lethargic, often there are no clinical signs. A horse remains infected throughout its lifetime and can pass the disease to other horses. Owners of EIA-positive horses have two options:  lifetime quarantine of the animal or euthanasia.

A yearly Coggins test will screen for antibodies that are indicative of the presence of EIA. State law requires a negative Coggins test for any horse that is transported from its home farm to any event or other location.

To ensure the safety of your horse, make sure its Coggins test is current and that your animal does not have close contact with any horses that are not up-to-date. Cleanliness in and around your barn and a manure management plan can also help reduce the fly population.

The state veterinarian and staff are focused on animal health and disease prevention through disease testing and surveillance.

Tennessee normally experiences a few cases of EIA each year. For more information, contact your local veterinarian or the state veterinarian’s office at 615-837-5120.


Nashville – The recent winter storms were hard on Tennessee’s landscape. Heavy ice brought down limbs and trees across the state. Brush pile burning is one of the best ways for landowners to clean up woody debris from the storms.

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is reminding citizens that outdoor burning requires a permit through May 15. 

If you are burning a leaf or brush pile that is smaller than 8 feet by 8 feet in size, log on to www.burnsafetn.org to secure a permit.


For a larger burn, apply for a permit by calling your local Division of Forestry burn permit phone number Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Phone numbers can be found by visiting www.burnsafetn.org.

Burn permits are free. Residents should check with their city and county government for any local restrictions.


Once you have obtained a burn permit, remember these tips:

  • Develop a bare-soil perimeter around the fire.
  • Notify neighbors and local fire departments in advance.
  • Have a leaf rake and access to water for fire control.
  • Be aware that wind can blow the fire in the wrong direction.
  • Stay with the fire until it is extinguished. It is illegal to leave an open fire unattended.


In 2014, debris fires that got out of control were the leading cause of wildfires in Tennessee, burning 5,366 acres statewide.

Burning debris without a permit is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine and jail time.

Arson was the second leading cause of wildfires last year but accounted for the most acreage damaged, with 7,800 acres burned. Wildland arson is a class C felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. Anyone with information about suspected arson activity should call the state Fire Marshal’s Arson Hotline toll-free at 1-800-762-3017.

Obtaining a Burning Permit by Phone

Permits are free of charge and may be obtained by calling the phone number listed below for the county in which the burning will be done. Burning permits are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except on holidays. Permits may be obtained in advance for weekends and holidays.

The number to call in Marshall, Bedford, and Maury Counties is (877) 350-BURN (2876)

State Fire Marshal Reminds Residents To Create Fire Escape Plan

NASHVILLE – If you woke up to a fire in your home, how much time do you think you would have to get to safety? According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), one-third of American households estimated that it would take at least six minutes before a fire in their home would become life-threatening. Unfortunately, the time available is often much less.

The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office is urging Tennesseans to create a home fire escape plan similar to the one featured in this public service announcement developed by the Oak Ridge Fire Department.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office also offers the following tips for making your own home fire escape plan:

Plan Your Escape

• Draw a floor-plan of your home, marking two ways out of every room.

• Agree on an outside meeting place (something permanent, like a tree, light pole, or mailbox) a safe distance from the home where everyone should gather in an emergency.

• Practice your home fire drill at night and during the day with everyone in your home, twice a year. Practice using different ways out.


Be Prepared

• Install smoke alarms inside and outside every sleeping area and on every level of your home.

• Test your smoke alarms monthly and change the batteries at least once a year. Replace your smoke alarms every 10 years.

• Ensure everyone in the household knows the sound of the smoke alarm and what it signifies.

• Ensure everyone in the household can unlock and open all doors and windows, even in the dark.

• If a room has a window air conditioner, make sure there is still a second way out of the room. Windows with security bars, grills, and window guards should have emergency release devices. Make sure you can operate these.

• Children, older adults, and people with disabilities may need assistance to wake up and get out. Make sure that someone will help them.

• Teach your children how to escape on their own in case you cannot help them.


Get Out

• If the smoke alarm sounds or fire is discovered in your home, get out fast.

• Doors need to be tested before opening them. Use the back of your hand to see if the door is warm. If it is, use another escape route.

• If you have to escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your way out.

• If you are trapped, close all doors between you and the fire. Stuff the cracks around the doors with clothes or towels to keep out smoke. Call the fire department, wait at a window and signal for help with a light-colored cloth or a flashlight.


Stay Out

• Once you are out, stay out. Don't go back inside for any reason.

• Call the fire department from your safe meeting place.

• If people or pets are trapped, notify the fire department and let them handle the rescue efforts.
