The home and family vehicle are essential spaces to keep smokefree as children and elders are at risk of lung related
issues caused from second- and thirdhand smoke. As children are exposed to airborne smoke particles,
there is risk of developing severe health issues such as asthma, lung diseases, or heart diseases.

Thirdhand smoke is when cigarette smoke particles land on furniture, car seats, or other surfaces continuing to
put children and elderly at risk. Switching from smoking to vaping does not protect your child or those around
you. E-cigarette aerosol is not harmless. It contains nicotine and other chemicals, which are harmful to everyone
who inhales it, especially youth, pregnant women, the elderly, and those who have lung illnesses.
