    To protect residents and visitors from secondhand smoke exposure, North Central Public Health District TPEP works to create smoke- and tobacco-free environments. These areas include:

    • Worksites
    • Multi-unit housing
    • Parks and outdoor areas

    Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) or visit www.quitnow.net/oregon to get free help on how to quit using tobacco.
