Smoking Precautions

The unsafe use of smoking materials is the leading cause of fire deaths among older Americans.

  • Don't leave smoking materials unattended.
  • Don't put ashtrays on arms of sofas or chairs where they can be easily knocked over.
  • Use safety ashtrays with wide lips.
  • Empty all ashtrays into the toilet or metal container every night before going to bed.
  • Never smoke in bed. Burning sheets and blankets may create a fire from which escape may be impossible.
  • Make sure your smoke detectors are working.
