Get Project Action info

Dear Editor,

Project Action Tobacco-Free Coalition in Hamilton, Fulton, and Montgomery counties educates community leaders and the community about tobacco free recreational areas.

Currently over 350 municipalities in New York state have passed regulation restricting tobacco use in outdoor recreational areas.

Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 30 percent of U.S. cancer deaths annually and contributes substantially to deaths from heart disease, stroke and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to the National Institutes of Health State-of-the-Science in a conference statement for tobacco use, prevention, cessation and control.

In Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery counties, some municipalities and businesses have taken the initiative to make their parks, entryways or their grounds tobacco free for the health of their employees and visitors. Project Action partners with the Four Rivers Alliance of Hamilton County to educate about the environmental impact of tobacco litter and the dangers of second-hand smoke.
