- Investigate - Complaints and sample environments that may have unhealthy levels.
- Enforce - Many municipalities across the county prohibit smoking in public places, requiring enforcement of local codes, ordinances, and statutes restricting tobacco use.
- Educate - Environmental health agencies provide many educational resources, programs, and campaigns in awareness or to prevent illness and injury.
