The Tennessee General Assembly established and funded a State Office for T.A.R.S. in 1971. The State Office

serves as a communications and record hub for the organization. Handling logistics for our State meetings, conducting legislative efforts, and acting as a liaison between T.A.R.S. and other State Emergency Organizations are important functions of our State Office as well.
