Careless Smoking

Smoking is the leading cause of home fire deaths.

What you can do

  • Use a sturdy ashtray and set it on a hard surface
  • Put it out, all the way, every time! Make sure cigarettes and other smoking materials are all the way out.
  • Don't discard cigarettes in vegetation such as mulch, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses, leaves etc.
