Smoking is the single biggest cause of fire deaths in the UK. If you smoke it is important you take care when extinguishing your smoking materials.
- Be extra careful if you have been drinking alcohol or taking medication which may make you drowsy.
- Be careful with candles and tea lights. Avoid placing them on or near materials that could burn or catch fire – like curtains.
- Make sure cigarettes are put out properly after you have finished with them.
