The mission of the Public Health Seattle & King County Tobacco Prevention Program is to prevent tobacco use and addiction, exposure to secondhand smoke, and to support effective cessation efforts.
Key activities of the Tobacco Prevention Program
Helping people quit
We support a number of local agencies to reduce tobacco use in high-use populations by offering training on tobacco screening and counseling for providers. We also promote the Washington State Tobacco Quitline, which provides free counseling services for Washington residents.
We educate business owners, enforce the Smoking in Public Places law, and assist businesses, cities, and colleges in creating additional smoke-free environments.
Preventing youth tobacco use
We educate retailers on youth access laws and conduct routine retailer compliance inspections.
