Grant To Address Opioid Overdose Prevention In Six-County Area

COLUMBIA, Tenn. – Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) was recently awarded a $100,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to assist in preventing opioid overdose deaths in Maury, Giles, Lawrence, Lewis, Marshall and Wayne counties.

According to MRMC Population Health Director Jill Gaddes, who coordinated the grant, the program is designed to equip first responders in rural areas with naloxone, an injectable medication that reverses symptoms of an opioid overdose. The grant will provide for training of participating agencies as well as medication and supplies.

The Tennessee Department of Health reports that 1,263 deaths in Tennessee in 2014 were the result of drug overdose, including 20 deaths in Maury County. In July 2014, Tennessee passed a Good Samaritan law that grants civil immunity for those who administer naloxone to someone they believe is overdosing on an opioid.

A steering committee will be formed to develop a plan of action for training and distribution of medication and supplies to first responder agencies who are partnering with MRMC on the grant project.

Tennessee State Fire Marshal Warns Consumers About Smoking Dangers

Fires Related to Smoking Contributed to 72 deaths, $37.2M in Property Damage

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) reminds Tennesseans that if they smoke, they should always remain alert while smoking and use caution and care with all cigarettes.

Fires caused by smoking materials have taken a heavy toll on Tennesseans and Tennessee fire departments. The National Fire Incident Reporting

System shows that during a five-year period (2010-2014), Tennessee fire departments responded to 3,478 smoking-material fires.  (Smoking materials are lighted tobacco products but do not include matches or lighters.) Those fires resulted in 71 civilian deaths, one fire service death, 91 civilian injuries, 22 fire service injuries and $37.2 million in direct property damage, records show.

The SFMO offers these safety reminders for anyone who currently smokes or is considering smoking:

  • To prevent a deadly cigarette fire, you must be alert. You won’t be alert if you are sleepy, have taken medicine or drugs that make you drowsy, or have consumed alcohol.
  • If you smoke, smoke outside. Never smoke in bed.
  • Never smoke where medical oxygen is used. Medical oxygen can cause materials to ignite more easily and make fires burn at a faster rate than normal. It can make an existing fire burn faster and hotter.
  • Wherever you smoke, use deep, sturdy ashtrays. If ashtrays are not available, use a metal can or pail.
  • Never empty smoking material directly into a trash can. Place away from anything that can burn.
  • Do not throw out cigarettes into vegetation, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses, mulch, leaves, and other similar items—they can easily catch fire.
  • Before you throw out butts and ashes, make sure they are out. Put them out in water or sand.
  • Before going to bed, check under furniture cushions and around places where people smoke for cigarette butts that may have fallen out of sight.
  • Keep cigarettes, lighters, matches, and other smoking materials up high out of the reach of children, in a locked cabinet.
  • Use caution with electronic cigarettes (e-cigs). Charge the device as directed by the manufacturer.  Only use the charger supplied with your device. Do not mix and match components from different manufacturers or from other devices.  Do not leave unattended while charging. Do not over tighten the battery to the charger. Remove the battery from charger when fully charged. Clean the connections at least once a week.

State of TN Revenue Report-August 2015

Tennessee revenue collections exceeded budgeted estimates for the first month of the state’s fiscal year. Finance and Administration Commissioner Larry Martin today reported that overall August revenues were $898.4 million, which is $28.5 million above August 2014 collections. The growth rate for August was 3.27%.

“Sales tax collections reflecting July’s consumer activity grew 8.26% over the same time period one year ago, while corporate tax collections fell short of budgeted estimates by $26.6 million,” Martin said. “The shortfall in corporate taxes can be attributed mostly to refunds of pre-paid taxes.  All other taxes, taken as a group, had a negative growth of 0.38% but were $6.0 million above the budgeted estimate for August.

“While we are encouraged by the August revenue numbers, we do have some concerns about global economic uncertainty, and what effect we might see in Tennessee from further decline in the European and Asian markets. It’s important for us to maintain close controls on state spending and to carefully monitor our revenue trends.”

On an accrual basis, August is the first month in the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

The budgeted revenue estimates for 2015-2016 are based on the State Funding Board’s consensus recommendation of December 16, 2014 and adopted by the first session of the 109th General Assembly in April 2015. Also incorporated in the estimates are any changes in revenue enacted during the 2015 session of the General Assembly. These estimates are available on the state’s website at http://www.tn.gov/finance/article/fa-budget-rev.
