Secondhand smoke is a public health hazard. Nonsmokers exposed to secondhand smoke in public places or at work significantly increase their risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory illnesses.
The best way to protect workers and citizens in Natrona County from the serious health hazards caused by secondhand smoke is to pass a strong smokefree ordinance. Smokefree Natrona is a group of citizens committed to making the community a healthier place to live.
Smokefree Natrona County is a group of local organizations and individuals who support making all public and work places 100% smokefree in order to protect citizens and workers from the dangers of secondhand smoke.
Everyone has the right to breathe clean, smokefree air indoors in all work and public places including restaurants and bars.
