American Red Cross

American Red CrossNashville, TN – A donation shortfall over the winter holidays is prompting the American Red Cross to issue an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to give now to prevent a blood shortage from continuing throughout winter and affecting patient care.

The Red Cross collected more than 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s than needed to sustain a sufficient blood supply. During this period, about 1,350 fewer blood drives were hosted by volunteer sponsor groups than required to meet patient needs as busy holiday schedules kept many donors away.

Fewer drives, busy holiday schedules lead to blood shortage says American Red Cross. (Amanda Romney/American Red Cross)

Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Colder temperatures are in the forecast for many Tennesseans as we approach the weekend, and the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) is reminding Volunteer State residents to keep safety in mind when choosing to use alternative heating options as a way to stay warm.

Wood-burning heat sources, like wood stoves and fireplaces, are common in Tennessee and are just as hazardous as traditional heating sources (electric, gas). According to state fire data from 2013 – 2017, wood-burning stoves or fireplaces were involved in 9% of heating fires, but accounted for 38% of heating fire deaths.

Wood-Burning Heating Equipment Cause Over $10.7M in Loss from 2013-2017 according to the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office.
