The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance and the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office announce the launch of HEROES (“Helping Educate Residents On Safety”), a new fire safety education and recognition program.

Created to raise awareness about the importance of home fire safety, HEROES gives licensed real-estate agents and home inspectors fire safety educational materials designed to share information about fire safety when they are in the homes of their clients.

In return for sharing these materials, the licensed professionals will get an opportunity to associate their businesses with potentially life-saving fire safety messages each time they are with their clients.

The HEROES program combines the resources of the SFMO with the Division of Regulatory Boards, which regulates over 300,000 professionals through its 26 regulatory programs.
