The U.S. Surgeon General says there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke, and yet many Californian's are involuntarily exposed to it in a regular basis through:

   Housing  

      Cars       

Workplaces

       Dining   

 Parks & Rec 

CDC SHS effects


Secondhand smokers inhale the same harmful chemicals that smokers inhale and also suffer from many of the same diseases and health complications as smokers. 

Plumas County Public Health Agency works towards reducing the amount of exposure to secondhand smoke.  One way to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke is by implementing a smoke-free, location-based policy. Policies have already been utilized for Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds, hospitals, Plumas County Community Development Commission's multi-unit housing communities and shopping centers in Plumas County.
