Dear Captain and Unit Directors

If you do not receive these within a couple of weeks, please let me know so that we can send you another one out.

NOTICE TO ALL INSTRUCTORS
Effective April 2014 we will not be changing any instructor's group assignment. We encourage you to attend on the year that you are required to. By having some instructors in your department coming every year, your department will be current in any changes to the programs. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

TARS HISTORY ON DVD
We now have 2 historical short films that were made in conjunction with TARS, TVA, and The United States Coast Guard on DVD. These films were made in the early 1970's. The first movie titled "Not By a Damsite" is about TVA Dams and their dangers to boats. The second movie titled "Inland Water Search Rescue and Recovery" is about dragging operations and recovery. Both movies are just over 15 minutes long. These historical movies are great to watch and despite being approximately 40 years old, a lot of the the information covered in them is still being used today.
Copies are available for purchase.
Cost is $10 per DVD to pick up at the office. Or we can mail them to you for an additional charge of $2 per DVD.They will also be available at the Region Meetings in June.
For more information, please contact Stacy at the State Office at 865-689-3256 or stacy@tnars.org.
