Tobacco-Free Assistance is available for Lincoln and Lancaster County Businesses and Schools
All K-12 public schools in Lancaster County have a tobacco-free campus. Many businesses are also choosing to make their entire campus tobacco-free (including e-cigarettes) and extending this policy to cover business vehicles.
If you would like FREE assistance developing, updating, or implementing your tobacco-free campus policy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Local Health Agencies Adopt Tobacco-Free Campus Policy
St. Monica’s, CenterPointe and The Bridge Behavioral Health rehabilitation centers adopted a tobacco-free campus policy and they highlighted their experiences on the video Tobacco-Free Campuses in Behavioral Health Settings.
In April 2015, these three behavioral health agencies received a Community Public Health Award from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Board of Health for adopting a tobacco-free campus policy. View their award ceremony.
TFLC recognizes those businesses that have chosen to make their entire campus smoke/tobacco-free.
