Clearing the air in Hamilton, Fulton & Montgomery Counties

ATFC seeks to support and promote tobacco-free environments anywhere Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery County residents live, work and play. By working with municipalities, local business owners and organizations, ATFC’s goal is to:

Smoke-free outdoor air policies provide clean, safe environments for the residents and employees of Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery Counties — particularly those frequented by children, such as parks and playgrounds. These policies help reduce the medical, environmental and maintenance costs incurred from secondhand smoke and cigarette butt litter. ATFC helps facilitate change as well as provide support to the municipalities and organizations introducing a smoke-free outdoor air policy.

Businesses can benefit from adopting either a tobacco-free grounds policy or an entryway policy.  It’s a smart move, considering the annual estimated cost of lost wages, benefits and services due to secondhand smoke is $5.7 billion nationally. By eliminating secondhand smoke or tobacco products from your environment your business can present a more professional image and increase productivity — which saves money.

Smoke-free multi-unit housing protects the heart of New York State residents from the effects of secondhand smoke. We work with public housing authorities, apartment complexes and landlords to adopt tobacco-free policies. In addition, we provide education and resources to assist both tenants and landlords in this process.

Here’s How ATFC Can Help You Go Tobacco-Free, Free Of Charge.
