Nashville, TN – As the school year comes to a close, many Tennesseans are turning their attention to family vacation plans. The State Fire Marshal’s Office asks that you remember to incorporate fire safety into travel plans before hitting the road for your summer retreat.
“Hotels and motels become a home away from home for travelers, so it is important to become familiar with new surroundings and to have a plan in place should an emergency arise,” says State Fire Marshal and Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak.
Being mindful of the following safety points will help ensure that your upcoming vacation is as safe as it is fun!
The Hotel and Motel Fire Safety Act of 1990 was enacted by Congress to save lives and protect property by promoting fire and life safety in hotels, motels and other places of public accommodation. Fire safety in places of public accommodation is encouraged through creation of a National Master List (NML) of hotel and motel properties that voluntarily comply with the provisions of the Act.
While these tips are for travelers, fire safety in your home should remain your No.1 priority. For information on making your home fire-safe, download and print the State Fire Marshal’s home fire safety checklist (http://tn.gov/fire/fsk/documents/checklist.pdf). 
The State Fire Marshal’s Office (www.tn.gov/commerce/sfm/)  is a division of the Department of Commerce and Insurance (www.tn.gov/commerce/),  which works to protect consumers while ensuring fair competition for industries and professionals who do business in Tennessee. www.tn.gov/commerce/,  @TNCommerceInsur (Twitter), http://on.fb.me/uFQwUZ  (Facebook), http://bit.ly/ry1GyX  (YouTube)
