Fireworks Safety Urged
Thursday June 30, 2016

The Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office is warning residents about firework dangers.
Officials are issuing a simple message for this Fourth of July: "Let the pros handle the fireworks".
State fire officials are urging Tennesseans to participate in events that are professionally run, instead of risking their lives, and possibly breaking the law by lighting fireworks themselves.
A few tips officials have for residents to keep them safe are:
Never allow children to handle or ignite fireworks.
Read and follow all warnings and instructions.
Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
Wear eye protection.
Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks.
Never throw or point fireworks at people or animals.
Only light fireworks outdoors on a smooth, flat surface away from homes, dry leaves and flammable materials.
Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned.
Keep a bucket of water and a garden hose nearby in case of a malfunction or fire.
Sparklers are not toys and cause hundreds of injuries every year. Sparklers burn hot, can reach temperatures as high as 1,200° F, and stay hot long after they’ve burned out. You wouldn’t hand a matchbook or lighter to a child to wave or play with – so, don’t give a child a sparkler.

 


New Tennessee Laws
AP Thursday June 30, 2016

Starting on Friday, consumers will be able to buy wine in Tennessee supermarkets, professors and staff will be able to be armed on the campuses of public colleges and universities and drivers will be subject to stricter penalties for texting on the road.
Many bills passed by lawmakers this year took effect upon being signed by Gov. Bill Haslam, but others were linked to the start of the new budget year on July 1.
The campus carry bill was the result of heavy negations between gun-rights advocates and higher education officials who opposed allowing more weapons on campus.
The law keeps gun bans in place for stadiums or gymnasiums while school-sponsored events are in progress; meetings where disciplinary issues are being discussed; and day care centers on campus.

Road Work Halted
Thursday June 30, 2016

Road construction will not slow motorists across Tennessee over the July 4th holiday. The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at midnight Thursday through 6am Tuesday, July 5th. This should provide maximum roadway capacity for holiday travelers.
TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said Tennessee's interstates and state routes will be especially busy during the July 4th holiday.
AAA projects nearly 43 million Americans will travel this Independence Day weekend, the highest July 4th travel volume on record, and a half million more travelers than last year.
