Coffee Break Training: Inspection Techniques: Smoking Regulations for Fire Safety   [open pdf - 394KB]

"Carelessly discarded cigarettes and other smoking materials remain a leading cause of fires in the United States. The model fire codes give the fire official great latitude in regulating smoking for fire safety. Smoking includes lighted pipes, cigars, cigarettes, or any other type of smoking paraphernalia. Where smoking is considered a hazard, the code official is authorized to order the owner to post 'No Smoking' signs in conspicuous, designated locations where smoking is prohibited. The size, shape, color, and construction of the signs may be determined by the code official. 'No Smoking' signs may not be removed, defaced, obscured, or damaged."
