Smoke Free NIAS

Smoke Free LogoIn line with the Health Minister’s announcement, The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Trust will be Smoke Free across all sites from 9th March 2016.

This means that smoking or using e-cigarettes will not be acceptable anywhere on NIAS Trust sites, including buildings, entrances, exits, grounds, car parks and all vehicles. There will no longer be any smoking shelters and smoking will not be permitted in cars parked on Trust grounds. This applies to everyone using NIAS Trust facilities and services.
