Smoke-Free Homes & Cars

Protect your family from secondhand smoke by choosing not to smoke in your home or car, even if the windows are open. Do not allow anyone to smoke indoors or anywhere near your family.

Secondhand smoke causes serious problems, including:

  • More frequent and severe asthma attacks
  • Increased lower respiratory tract infections, such as bronchitis and pneumonia
  • More middle ear infections
  • Higher risk for low birth weight babies
  • Increased risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

Also, check out our Clark County Smoke-free Multi-unit Housing Toolkit to learn the benefits of going smoke-free and find the resources necessary to implement an effective and legal policy in your multi-family community.

A few simple ways to make your home and car smoke-free include:

  • Declare your home and car smoke-free.
  • Choose not to smoke in your home and car, even if the windows are open.
  • Do not allow anyone else to smoke in your home or car.
  • Until you can quit, choose to smoke outside. Moving to another room or opening a window is not enough to protect your family from secondhand smoke.

If family members want to quit, be patient and supportive. For help quitting smoking, call the Nevada Tobacco Quitline at 1-800 QUIT NOW.
