Smoking Safety Tips for Murrieta?

2/8/2022 (Permalink)

A man is smoking a cigarette. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Riverside County.

Do you know that most smoking fires and deaths occur in the home? SERVPRO® of Murrieta responds to fire damage emergencies every year in Murrieta and offer these smoking safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

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

Electronic Cigarettes

Never leave charging e-cigarettes unattended. E-cigarettes should be used with caution.

  • Battery failures have led to small explosions
  • Fires have occurred while e-cigarettes were being used
    • While the battery was being charged
    • While the device was being transported
