Smokefree Events

The ALA is helping community events go smokefree in Shasta, Butte, Tehama, Glenn, Colusa and Yuba counties.

Smokefree policies protect attendees, staff and vendors from the dangers of secondhand smoke. They make it safe for everyone in the community to attend, even for people with lung conditions like asthma or COPD which are worsened by secondhand smoke.
