Vulcan Materials, located at 1001 Downs Blvd. in Franklin, blasts several times each week.  The vibrations can be felt throughout downtown Franklin and the surrounding area.  Each blast is monitored by seismic equipment to ensure that the ground movement and air blasts are within limits as established by the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office.  These limits were established to prevent damage to structures.

Please contact the State Fire Marshal at (615) 741-7190 to report blasting damage or related concerns.
