Current Initiatives

Outdoor smoking bans are fast becoming the trend among business owners and municipalities, whether it is no smoking in the entryway, on the entire ground or in public parks and beaches. Find out if your local park, beach or playground has gone smoke-free...
  The tobacco industry spends billions of dollars to market its deadly products in our stores including: paying retailers to prominently display tobacco products, in-store advertising, price discounts and other in-store promotions.  Exposure to tobacco marketing in stores is a primary cause of youth smoking.  Every day our children are exposed to prominent tobacco displays at the cash register.  To protect our children, our community/state must reduce youth exposure to in-store tobacco marketing.   Prohibiting smoking in multi-unit dwellings such as apartments, condos, and duplexes is a win-win for the tenant and the property owner.

The Southern Adirondack Tobacco Free Coalition (SATFC) is a grassroots coalition of local agencies and individuals working together to reduce the prevalence of tobacco use and to promote healthy communities.  SATFC serves Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties in New York State.  The Coalition is funded by the New York State Department of Health Tobacco Control Program.

SATFC staff and members engage community leaders and the public in policy development to reduce the harm of tobacco at the local level; negotiate with local stakeholders to adopt resolutions that will restrict the tobacco industry presence, and work with policy makers to de-normalize tobacco use and eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke.

The SATFC office in Saratoga Springs can be reached at (518) 581-1230, or by email at satfc@preventioncouncil.org.
