Smokefree homes and cars

Why is it important that your home and car are Smokefree?

  • Children are particularly vulnerable to second hand smoke as their lungs, airways and immune systems are less developed.
  • 95% of estimated deaths from second hand smoke are due to exposure in the home.
  • Pregnant women and their families who smoke increase the risk of miscarriage, still birth and death in the first few months of life.
  • Smoking is a major fire risk within the home.
  • Family pets have the same exposure to smoke in the home and car.


Hertfordshire Public Health is committed to protecting babies and young children from second hand smoke. Therefore they have introduced the smokefree kit.  The kit will be sent out on request to smokers, pregnant women and their partners and families that want to be smokefree in their home and car.

Please contact Hertfordshire Stop Smoking Service for your free SMOKEFREE kit.
