Vapers around the UK will be pleased to hear that London Fire-fighters are declaring that vaping is indeed safer than smoking. The fire-fighters are backing PHE (Public Health England) in their Stoptober campaign to get smokers to switch to vaping, as a way to also reduce the numbers of smoking related fires caused in the UK.
Statistics show that there were 3580 smoking related fires in the last 3 years, and only 15 vaping related fires. There were 66 fire related deaths, and 0 vaping relating deaths!
So not only is vaping better for our health, we are less likely to die in a fire caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette or falling asleep with a burning cigarette in our fingers.
Sounds good to me! And I would just like to say to the London Fire-fighters – “Thank you” 😀
