Safety Message: Cigarettes Need to be Discarded Safely or They Can Pose a MAJOR Fire Threat

7 Comments

Besides lung cancer, cigarettes pose an often overlooked danger to both smokers and non-smokers. Despite the fact that 83% of adults don’t smoke, smoking is the leading cause of fire deaths. Anytime a cigarette butt is not properly disposed off, it poses a major risk causing fire. Cigarettes cause one in ten Oregon fires, and almost half of all fire deaths. Since this most often will occur in a single unit residential home, these fires are devastating to families. Even when smoking outside, cigarettes must be disposed of in sturdy ashtrays or put out in water or sand. A cigarette discarded in landscaping or potted plants could cause a fire.

If you are ready to quit smoking, call the Oregon QuitLine at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or go to http://oregonquitline.com/.
