The Tobacco Use Control Program invites all Departments and Facilities to join us in eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke at local parks, trails, playgrounds, and athletic fields, by participating in the “Welcome to Our Tobacco Free Parkland” initiative sponsored by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
It is easy to participate, by posting signage at your sites you can begin to change the behaviors of tobacco users that visit your outdoor spaces. The Tobacco Use Control Program created the new Welcome To Our Tobacco Free Parkland sign for VRPS partner agencies. The signs are FREE and available to order.
