Smoking & Matches

Smoking is still the leading cause of deadly home fires.

Never smoke in bed or when you are drowsy.

Never empty ashtrays into the trash can shortly after smoking.  Wait several hours for the smoldering embers to completely extinguish themselves.

Thoroughly check both sides of the chair or sofa cushions that you are sitting on to be sure you didn't accidentally drop any ashes.

If a cushion or couch has been scorched, put it outside away from the house overnight and call the fire department.

Never smoke or light matches near flammable materials.

Teach children the danger of playing with matches & lighters.  Keep them away from children's reach.  And, remember, children can find ways to climb!
