Tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than 443,000 deaths each year. An estimated 49,000 of these tobacco-related deaths are the result of secondhand smoke exposure. More deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by all deaths from HIV/AIDS, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined.

Tobacco Free Onondaga County (TFOC) was formed in 1992 as a partnership of local organizations and individuals committed to creating a healthy and tobacco-free community. TFOC is supported through a grant from the New York State Department of Health Tobacco Control Program.
