Clear the Air with Smoke-Free Apartments Webinar

Event Details

Smoking is a leading cause of fires and the number one cause of fire fatalities. Since 2018, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has required all its communities to be smoke-free. 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.

Presented by Carleen Crawford, Regional Tobacco Control Manager, Mecklenburg County Public Health; Anna Stein, Legal Specialist, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services; Scott Wilkerson, Chief Investment Officer, Ginkgo Residential
