[ARCHIVED] Bismarck Fire Department Safety Tips for Smokers

Smoking Material Fires Are Preventable

As awareness about the health effects of second-hand smoke has increased, the number of households banning indoor smoking has grown. Careful disposal of smoking materials is as important outside as inside. Do not throw out cigarette butts into vegetation, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses, mulch, leaves, or similar yard waste.  Only use non-combustible receptacles to dispose of your butts.  Never use a plastic butt container--they can easily catch fire. The resulting fire can spread to the home’s siding, deck or porch and from there, into the home itself.  


It is important for smokers to know the steps you can take to keep yourselves and your families safe from fire.  Don’t let your world go up in smoke.
