NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The state fire marshal's office is sharing some hotel safety tips for Tennessee travelers this summer.
Commerce and Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak says hotels and motels become a home away from home for travelers, and it's important for them to become familiar with new surroundings and have a plan in place should an emergency arise.
Some safety suggestions include choosing a hotel equipped with both smoke alarms and fire sprinklers, reading the escape plan posted in the room, and keeping a flashlight near the bed.
