Smoke Free Parks in Atlanta | H.E.A.R.T. Coalition, Inc

Tobacco use is the most preventable cause of death in the United States. Every year, around 440,000 Americans die from tobacco use and nearly 50,000 die from exposure to secondhand smoke. Parents, coaches, and recreational leaders are role models for youth and can have a positive effect on their lifestyle choices.

Prohibiting tobacco use at our community’s parks and recreational facilities protects the health, safety, and welfare of everyone in the community.
