Smoking Safety Tips

It Only Takes a Second!

Smoking is the number one cause of home fire deaths in the United States. Fires caused by cigarettes and other smoking materials are preventable. You can make a difference.

When you smoke outside, make sure you put your cigarettes in proper containers such as metal or ceramic pots filled with sand (such as the one pictured on the right), not potting soil. Place these containers away from the house, not on the front porch, deck or just outside your door.
