U.S. Fire Administration Seeks a Safer 'Home Fire Season'

furniture and under sofa cushions before you call it a night.

-- Douse butts and ashes with water before you toss them into the trash.

-- If you or someone in your family smokes, Put It Out. All the Way. Every

Time.

The USFA has materials for consumers, firefighters, and the media including a video demonstrating how fast a smoldering cigarette can ignite and consume a room, available at: http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/campaigns/smoking/journalist/index.shtm.

Through its Smoking & Home Fires Campaign, the USFA is reminding smokers and those who live with smokers to make sure smoking materials are properly extinguished and that they "Put It Out. All the Way. Every Time."

USFA data shows that one-in-four people killed in home fires is not the smoker whose cigarette caused the fire. In fact, 34% were children of the smokers and 25% were neighbors or friends of the smokers. Most smoking-related home fires happen on beds, furniture, or in trash when smokers do not put cigarettes all the way out, toss hot ashes in the trash or fall asleep while smoking.

Launched in January 2008, the USFA's Smoking & Home Fires Campaign is working in partnership with 17 national organizations to spread the message about fire safety including the:

1. American Fire Sprinkler Association

2. Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association

International (BIFMA)

3. Burn Foundation

4. Center for Campus Fire Safety

5. Coalition for Fire-Safe Cigarettes

6. Fire and Life Safety Section (part of IAFC)

7. Florida Association of Fire and Life Safety Educators

8. Home Safety Council

9. International Association of Black Professional Firefighters

10. International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC)

11. National Association of Hispanic Firefighters
