US Fire Administration in Washington, District of Columbia

115 months ago

The United States Fire Administration recently launched an important new public safety campaign to help end the number one cause of preventable home fire deaths – careless smoking.

Almost every day someone dies in a fire started by a cigarette left in an ashtray, or an ashtray dumped into the trash while the ashes were still hot, or by someone who fell asleep while smoking.

All too often, the victims of smoking fires include the firefighters who risk their lives trying to save others.

The tragedy is that these fires are easily preventable. It only takes a few moments to light a cigarette, and it only takes a few moments to make sure it’s put out, all the way, every time.

For more information about the campaign and to order free materials, please visit the campaign Web site and view the Web PSA at

“Put It Out. All the Way. Every Time.”
