The theme for NNSW 2009 was “What have you got to lose?”.
CCTC was pleased to be partner with the Fire Marshal’s Public Safety Council. The Council contacted the CCTC in early summer to discuss its plans to launch a smoking related fire deaths awareness campaign in 2009.
Smoking related fire deaths account for approximately 50% of all loss of life due to fires in the home. Their campaign goals are to educate Canadians that:
- smoking has been the # 1 cause of fire deaths for decades;
- fires caused by cigarettes and other smoking materials are preventable;
- if people must smoke that they smoke more safely.
