Put it out, right out!

A burning cigaretteSmoking’s not only bad for your health it can be bad for your home and possessions.

It only takes one cigarette to start a fire in your home which could potentially kill you and your family. To wipe out your possessions and childhood memories or leave thousands of pounds worth of damage to your home.

Smokers who are not ready to kick the habit yet should still follow a few simple precautions to prevent a fire in their home:

•  smoke outside - avoid the danger of a fire starting inside

•  don't leave lit cigarettes, cigars or pipes unattended

•  put them right out! - make sure you stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully

•  use a proper, heavy ashtray which can't tip over easily and is made of a material that won't burn

•  fit a smoke alarm and test it weekly

Complete a home fire risk check

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging residents to make sure they are fully aware of the fire hazards which commonly exist throughout the home, how to identify them and what to do should a fire occur, by completing a quick online home fire risk check.
