TOBACCO-FREE OUTDOORS (TFO) – The objective of the tobacco-free outdoors initiative is to increase the number of local laws, regulations and voluntary policies that prohibit tobacco use in outdoor areas including public parks, beaches, playgrounds, clubs, college campuses, and outdoor areas of businesses (including hospitals and other medical facilities), other grounds, recreation areas, and in proximity to building entryways by:

  • creating a local environment that successfully demands passage of laws or regulations requiring tobacco-free parks, playgrounds, beaches, grounds and/or entranceways.

  • ensuring major employers adopt a tobacco-free outdoor air policy including work site grounds, parking lots and proximity to entryways
