1 Keep matches, lighters, and novelty lighters up high out of the reach of children, in a locked cabinet.
2 Purchase and use only child- resistant lighters.
3. Lighters that look like toys can confuse children and cause fires, injuries, and death. Do not buy or use them.
4. Teach young children to tell a grown-up when they find matches or lighters and to never touch matches or lighters.
