Volunteers are invited to join Community Connections Tobacco Free Lincoln County Coalition, which is working to increase the number of outdoor recreational areas that have smoke-free policies; particularly children’s playgrounds.

The coalition promotes the Nebraska Tobacco Quitline and works with apartment owners to establish smoke-free policies for their buildings. They work with other organizations and businesses to reduce exposure of residents to secondhand smoke and secondhand aerosol.

The group meets once a month to develop work plans and foster relationships in the community.

Anyone interested in participating may call (308) 696-3356 or go to www.CommunityConnectionsLC.org/tflc for more information.

TFLC is funded by Nebraska Dept. of Health and Human Services / Tobacco Free Nebraska program, as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.
