The best fire prevention is fire education.

As a member of the fire service, you know all too well the dangers of unattended or improperly discarded smoking materials.

The USFA has created a comprehensive Smoking & Home Fires Campaign Toolkit that contains free, copyright-free materials that can be printed, distributed and presented to the community you serve. The toolkit is a comprehensive resource that contains materials for fire service personnel to use within their community. Below is a list of all toolkit materials:

The USFA urges you to take advantage of the toolkit resources. The materials in the toolkit can be implemented immediately within your organization and community. Work with your local community organizations on this effort to maximize coverage.
