State Fire Marshal: Misuse of Electric Cords Can Lead to Fires
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday November 14, 2017

As people begin putting up their holiday decorations, the State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) reminds Tennesseans that the dangers of electrical hazards are always present and warns of common hazards such as overloaded electrical outlets, arcing, and extension cords. Between 2012 and 2016 in Tennessee, electrical distribution equipment such as wiring, outlets, cords and plugs accounted for 9.51 percent of all structure fires and 14.38 percent of all structure fire deaths, according to SFMO data. The State Fire Marshal's Office says you should check all electrical cords often. Replace cracked, damaged, and loose electrical or extension cords. Do not try to repair them. Major and small appliances should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never an extension cord. Unplug small appliances when not in use. Extension cords are for temporary use only. Have a qualified electrician determine if additional circuits or wall outlets are needed. For more information on how to protect your family from an electrical fire, visit www.tn.gov/fire.

 


Operation Christmas Child Collection Week
Tuesday November 14, 2017

This week, two locations in the Cumberland County area will serve as drop-off sites for the Samaritan's Purse project, Operation Christmas Child, joining nearly 5,000 U.S. locations collecting gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world. During the project's National Collection Week, Nov. 13 - 20, Cumberland County residents will transform empty shoeboxes into gifts of hope filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys. Operation Christmas Child will deliver these shoebox gifts to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine. This year, Cumberland County-area residents hope to contribute more 5,000 shoebox gifts toward the 2017 global goal of reaching 12 million children. "We are honored to join the nationwide effort to collect gift-filled shoeboxes for children who may have never experienced the true meaning of Christmas," said Cumberland County volunteer Anita Smith, who has participated in Operation Christmas Child for 17 years. "Through these simple gifts and a message of hope, children learn that God loves them and has not forgotten them." The Cumberland County area Collection Sites: Crab Orchard Christian Church and Cumberland Fellowship.
