Our thoughts are with all those in Nashville and across the great state of Tennessee affected by the recent tornadoes. The safety of our DriveSafe Online family, customers and partners is our primary concern.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee called for residents to stay safe and be ready to help when possible. “Don’t go where the damage is,” Lee urged at a morning press conference, “but stay aware of how you can volunteer when the time is right.”
