How to Prevent a Home Fire
Make sure your home has working smoke detectors.
Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
Never smoke in bed, or even in a chair if you are apt to nod off.
Before you go to bed, check behind sofa cushions and on carpeting for dropped cigarettes.
Do not empty smoldering ashes into a trash can.
Keep ashtrays away from upholstered furniture and curtains.
