The cigarette is the #1 cause of residential fire deaths.
The Trauma Foundation started a campaign in 1978 to prevent these tragedies
by changing the cigarette.
Today, 49 states have passed legislation. It requires that cigarette
manufacturers certify that their product passes an ASTM cigarette flammability
test before it is sold in the states where the law has taken effect. Below
is the standard identifying mark on the package of cigarettes. (It actually
stands for "fire standards compliant".)
