Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

& Home Fire Safety

The place where we feel safest — at home — is where most smoking-materials

structure fires, deaths, and injuries occur. Smoking materials are the leading

cause of fire deaths. Smoking material fires are preventable. 

Smoking Safety

If you smoke, use only fire-safe cigarettes.

If you smoke, smoke outside. Most deaths result from fires that started in living rooms, family rooms and dens or in bedrooms.

Keep cigarettes, lighters, matches, and other smoking materials up high out of the reach of

children, in a locked cabinet.

Put It Out

Use a deep, sturdy ashtray. Place it away from anything that can burn.

Do not discard cigarettes in vegetation such as mulch, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss,

dried grasses, leaves or other things that could ignite easily.

Before you throw away butts and ashes, make sure they are out, and dousing in water or sand is the best way to do that.

Smoking and Medical Oxygen

Never smoke and never allow anyone to smoke where medical oxygen is used. Medical oxygen can cause materials to ignite more easily and make fires burn at a faster rate than normal. It can make an existing fire burn faster and hotter.
