This week's Safety Topic:

Carelessly discarded cigarettes, whether tossed from car windows or dropped on the sidewalk, start many fires. ***According to the U.S. Fire Administration, Smoking is the #1 CAUSE OF HOME FIRE DEATHS in the United States. Every year almost 1,000 smokers and non-smokers are killed in home fires caused by cigarettes and other smoking materials.***

Please keep these SMOKING SAFETY tips in mind:

  • If you smoke, smoke outside.
  • Safely dispose of cigarettes in ashtrays.
  • Wherever you smoke, use deep, sturdy ashtrays.
  • Make sure cigarettes and ashes are out.
  • Never smoke in a home where oxygen is used.
  • Never smoke in bed.
  • Be alert!
