Dozens of Pennsylvania parks and recreational areas are being declared smoke-free zones.

As part of the “Young Lungs at Play” program, smokers are being asked to refrain from lighting up cigarettes. The tobacco bans are designed to keep children away from second-hand smoke and to set a good example for them as well.

Joining us on the program will be Mary Levasseur, Lancaster General Health's Manager for Community Health & Wellness and Judy Ochs, Director of the Division of Tobacco Prevention and Control for the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
