Las Vegas Lights FC Goes Non-Smoking – Southern Nevada Health District
LAS VEGAS — In a win for Southern Nevada, Las Vegas Lights FC’s home games at Cashman Field are now smoke-free. The Lights ruling includes all tobacco products as well as e-cigarettes and vaping products. The current season continues until October with 17 home games remaining. The policy includes all areas of Cashman Field.
“The Southern Nevada Health District commends Las Vegas Lights FC for its commitment to reducing exposure to smoking and second-hand smoke for its fans, players and staff. Smoke-free spaces are a win for the overall health of our community,” said Dr. Fermin Leguen, District Health Officer for the Southern Nevada Health District.
“Lights FC is proud to partner with the Southern Nevada Health District on this important community initiative,” said Brett Lashbrook, owner and CEO of Lights FC. “Our decision to make Cashman Field smoke-free for our games was an important step in our collective goal of making life smoke-free for everyone goooooooooooal!”
Smoke-free policies at outdoor sports venues send a healthy message to the community. It makes tobacco use less visible and socially acceptable and provides a healthier environment for families.
The Southern Nevada Health District encourages all sites and employers to follow smoke-free policies.
The health district maintains a list of meeting spaces and smoke-free housing directories as well as resources to help people quit smoking or vaping on their Be Healthy in Tobacco-Free Clark County and Spanish speaking Viva Saludable Viva Libre De Tabaco pages.
