A quaintly dated fire safety film, Crimes of Carelessness enumerates the causes, dangers, and prevention methods for fires. According to the film, fire can strike anywhere at anytime: fire hazards are as ubiquitous as leaves on trees! Every year, fires destroy cities, forests, and homes, killing or injuring nearly 50,000 people. Fire accidents can be caused by putting a cigarette in the trash or throwing a cigarette from a car; children playing with matches; and people leaving electrical devices on without supervision. Steps towards prevention are easy! Use an ashtray. Keep matches away from children. Turn off electrical appliances after usage. Have the heating system checked once a year before the winter season. Do not smoke in bed. Lastly, keep the number of the fire department readily available in case of an emergency. Crimes of Carelessness is a fun vintage film that still contains valuable safety lessons for preventing burn injuries and fire damage.
