Put It Out!

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) created the Put It Out campaign to help first responders quit smoking and stay quit. Families, departments, and state associations can also use these resources to inform and help first responders take the first step towards a smoke-free life and support them as they maintain their healthier lifestyle.

The program is currently closed

Quit smoking and stay quit.

Firefighters and emergency personnel are known for running into extremely difficult situations when everyone else is running out. You can face the difficult process of quitting smoking. The Put It Out campaign provides the tools to help you get the job done and enjoy all of the benefits of a smoke-free lifestyle. Quit today for yourself and for all those who depend on your – your family, your department, and your community.
