A BIG shout out to the schools at South Harrison and Gilman City for being a tobacco free campus and to North Harrison for being smoke free! Gilman City also included e-cigarettes in their policy. Why do we want e-cigarettes in smoke free policies? "Because the standard is clean indoor air NOT less dirty air"!

Due to the acknowledged hazards of tobacco use and secondhand smoke the Harrison County Health Department and Harrison County Hospice has been a smoke free campus for the past 4 years.  It is our company policy to provide a tobacco-free environment for all employees and visitors.  This covers any tobacco product and the use of smokeless or “spit” tobacco, and applies to employees, contractors and visitors of the Health Department and Harrison County Hospice.  Tobacco use will be strictly prohibited within the building and anywhere on Health Department and Hospice grounds.  This also includes the prohibition of smoking in privately owned vehicles parked on Health Department and Hospice grounds.

 

For support in quitting smoking, including free quit coaching, a free quit plan, free educational materials, and referrals to local resources, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669).
