Fire Fatalities and Mortality Rate

As a response to reduce the number of lives that are lost annually in residential fires in Tennessee, the original “An Analysis of Civilian Residential Fire Deaths in Tennessee,” fire fatalities and mortality rate study was produced by the University of Tennessee in cooperation with the Tennessee Fire Chief's Association (TFCA), Tennessee Fire Safety Inspector Association (TFSIA), and the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO).

GET ALARMED: 335 Lives Saved
 

"Get Alarmed, TN!" is a grant-funded fire safety education and smoke alarm installation program administered by the State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO). Launched in November 2012, the program distributes fire safety education and 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms to participating fire departments. The fire departments then deliver the education and install smoke alarms in at-risk homes across the state. 


"Get Alarmed, TN" By The Numbers: 

  • Over 249,000 smoke alarms distributed
