With the Nov. 1 deadline to apply approaching, the Tennessee Promise program could be on pace to perhaps double the state's goal of applications. More than 35,000 high school students have applied for the program, which offers free tuition at the state's two-year community colleges and colleges of applied technology. That means some two-thirds of the 60,000 public high school seniors in Tennessee could eventually sign up for the program. The state's goal was 20,000 applications.
Tennessee Fire Marshal Gary West says a door can be a valuable firefighting tool. West says in a fire, closing the door when leaving a room that's on fire is a smart move. The state Department of Commerce and Insurance last week announced its "Close the Door" campaign and says closing the door reduces fire growth and spread, limits damage to the home and could save lives. The agency says a closed door can hinder flames and smoke from spreading as well as help deprive a fire of oxygen. The department advises sleeping with the door closed and says closing the door can give anyone inside a burning building time to escape and help control the blaze.
