This is Cinda Seamon, Public Education Officer for the Town of Hilton Head Island Fire and Rescue.
Have you Â ever tossed cigarette butts in the trash? Chances are you've seen what can happen if those butts are still hot. Maybe you got lucky that time. But what if it happens again and you're asleep? A fire started by a cigarette doesn't care if you're asleep. Make sure your cigarette is completely out so you can stop the fire before it starts. If you smoke, Put it Out. All the Way. Every Time. This message is brought to you by the United States Fire Administration, your local fire department, and this radio station.
