If You Smoke…

  • Never smoke when you are lying down, drowsy, or in bed. Smoking is the #1 cause of home fires that kill older adults.
  • Use large, deep, tip-resistant ashtrays and place them on a flat surface. This will keep ashes from falling onto a nearby area that might burn.
  • Wet cigarette butts and ashes before emptying them into the trash.
  • Smoke outside, if possible.
  • Never smoke near oxygen tanks.
