Did you know…..
Cigarettes can smolder for hours?

Tips to avoid smoking related fires:

  • Don’t smoke inside
  • Discard smoking materials in a safe container
  • Use a proper, deep ashtray that won’t tip easily
  • Don’t smoke in bed.
  • Don’t smoke if you’re tired, taking medications or if you are impaired.
  • After a party, check indoor and outdoor furniture and cushions for smoldering cigarette butts.

Smoking is a leading cause of fire deaths.
