Indoor Air

Florida Department of Health in Pasco County Environmental Health Services

The primary function of this program is to provide advice and expertise to Floridians with indoor air concerns in residences, schools, health-care and public facilities.  The Department of Health Indoor Air Program began in the late 1980's. Its goal is to improve the health of Floridians by reducing exposure to indoor air contaminants.

The Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (FCIAA) was enacted in 1985 by the Florida Legislature.  The purpose of this part is to protect people from the health hazards of secondhand smoke and to implement the Florida health initiative in s.20, Art. X of the state constitution.  It is the intent of the Legislature to not inhibit, or otherwise obstruct, medical or scientific research or smoking cessation programs approved by the Department of Health.  In November 2002, seventy-one percent of Florida's citizens voted for a constitutional amendment to prohibit smoking in all enclosed indoor workplaces.  The smoke free law became effective July 1, 2003.

Note: The Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (FCIAA) is no longer part of the Radon and Indoor Air program, but part of the Division of Community Health Promotion,Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida.  FCIAA program staff share responsibility for the implementation and enforcement of the statewide ban of smoking tobacco in most workplaces with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.  Call the FCIAA hotline at (800) 337-3742, or (850) 245-4281.
