Smoking is a leading cause of fires and the number one cause of fire fatalities. There is no safe amount of secondhand smoke; and thirdhand smoke exposure, or the residue left after the smoke is gone, is also dangerous, difficult and expensive to remove. Join our panel as we discuss a suggested process for converting apartments to smoke-free housing, including policy decisions, documentation, enforcement options and tools to help you and your residents with these adjustments.
Date and Time: Tuesday, March 7 at 2 p.m. ET
