Tucson, Arizona – Renters in Tucson can breathe a little easier today. NALS Apartment Homes, which has owned multifamily communities in Tucson since 1993, has declared their Tucson portfolio smoke-free. As of April 1st, 2017, smoking is prohibited within 20 feet of any building or common area at Saddle Ridge, Sonoran Terraces, Finisterra Rentals, and The Legends at La Paloma apartment communities.
NALS Apartment Homes is a progressive management company, and recognizes the human hazards of exposure to secondhand smoke. Going smoke-free is truly a win-win proposition for renters and property managers, since it protects the health and wellness of residents and staff, and the value of apartment buildings in the long-term. Secondhand smoke is a Class A carcinogen that can travel through doorways, windows, plumbing spaces and even light fixtures, so secondhand smoke from one apartment can adversely affect neighbors. Furthermore, the United States Fire Administration has identified smoking as the number one cause of home fire deaths in the United States. Tucson is the first of several rental markets that NALS plans to transition to smoke-free in the coming year.
NALS Apartment Homes is pleased to provide Tucson residents with smoke free options in the following apartment communities:
Free help is available to all Arizonans who want to quit smoking through the Arizona Smokers' Helpline (ASHLine) website or by calling their toll free number at 1-800-556-6222.
