Strict implementation of city’s anti–smoking ordinance called
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

There is a need for concerned city government offices and other agencies to coordinate with the police in strictly implementing the Anti-Smoking Ordinance.

This was emphasized by Mayor Mauricio Domogan during a recent meeting with department heads led by City Administrator Carlos Canilao, City Health Officer Rowena Galpo, City Treasurer Alex Cabarrubias, City Accountant Antonio Tabin, Medical Officer Donabelle Tubera, and a Baguio City Police Office representative among others.

Ordinance 34 s. 2017 prohibits the use, sale, distribution, and advertisement of cigarettes and other tobacco products in certain places.

The ordinance aims to safeguard public health and ensure the wellbeing of the city’s constituents by protecting them from the harmful effects of smoking and tobacco consumption.

It makes it unlawful for any person to smoke or allow smoking in public utility vehicles, government-owned vehicles or any other means of public transport, accommodation and entertainment establishments, public building, public place, enclosed public place, or any enclosed area outside of one’s private residence or private place of work, except at designated smoking areas.

The ordinance applies to all persons, whether natural or juridical, resident or not, and in all places, found within Baguio.

It also lists the prohibited acts, penalties to be imposed on violators, where the funds will go and creates a Smoke Free Task Force chaired by the mayor whose members include various heads of government offices and other concerned agencies.

The task force will aid in the implementation, enforcement, and monitoring of the ordinance and protect the same from tobacco industry interference at all times, as well as to conduct educational awareness campaigns, information dissemination, and capacity building programs that will inform constituents and train enforcement officers.

For further information about the ordinance, the public may contact 442-9829, 300-6588, 444-9217, 300-3895, and 300-3953.
