ANCHOR Incline Village – Washoe County
Incline Village, NV
The ANCHOR Incline Village, NV campaign is engaged in a community effort called Healthy Living Incline Village, which is working to increase smoke-free environments in both the indoor and outdoor spaces where people work, play, live, and learn. By partnering with citizens, educators, recreation administrators, tourism interests, outdoor enthusiasts, the health care community, and fire control professionals, Healthy Living Incline Village gathers influence from a diverse web of supporters. The goal is to help improve community health, while also keeping Lake Tahoe blue by protecting the area from fire and helping keep the trails, parks, and beaches free from cigarette butt litter. The Healthy Living Incline Village coalition efforts are also focused on achieving a tobacco-free campus at Sierra Nevada College. A tobacco-free campus will increase wellness, wealth, and health among students, faculty, and staff, and will help Incline Village lead the way for other Nevada communities in protecting our most valued resources – our people and our environment – from the dangers of tobacco.
