Tennessee State Fire Marshal Issues Order to Waive Propane Delivery Restrictions During State of Emergency

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN - Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak issued an order this afternoon to exempt Tennessee home and business owners from propane delivery restrictions in order to obtain needed propane.

“Heating homes and businesses is a priority during this cold weather snap,” said McPeak. “This order allows individuals to purchase propane from any dealer with available resources to help keep Tennesseans warm and in business while we manage these frigid temperatures.”

The Department of Commerce and Insurance is waiving the requirement that only the propane container dealer/owners can fill their containers. This order allows dealers of propane to fill or refill a container belonging to another dealer for the duration of the State of Emergency.

The Tennessee departments of Agriculture, Commerce and Insurance, Environment and Conservation, Safety, Transportation, and the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency are coordinating with each other to enact the order.
