As we know, in emergency preparedness, it is advisable to stock up on matches for fire starting and candles, but be aware that the “Strike Anywhere” matches are more hazardous to store because any friction can ignite them. The ones that have to be ignited by striking them on the box-strip specially designed for that purpose, are called safety matches. Those are best for storage.
I recently asked for a supply of matches when asked what to buy me for a Christmas gift, all three boxes of matches had ignited somehow on route to me and were reduced to burnt-out matches — a definite fire hazard.
