Why is it important to become a smoke-free housing development?

Secondhand smoke is a major concern for residents of multi-unit housing (e.g apartment buildings and condominiums). It can migrate from other units and common areas and travel through doorways, cracks in walls, electrical lines, plumbing, and ventilation systems.
