Indoor Air Quality

Contact Us

The Department of Health Indoor Air Program began in the late 1980's. Its goal is to improve the health of Floridians by reducing exposure to indoor air contaminants. The primary function of this program is to provide advice and expertise to Floridians with indoor air concerns in residences, schools, health-care and public facilities. The program currently consists of a statewide indoor air coordinator in Tallahassee, and environmental specialists working through County Health Departments to provide Indoor Air Quality expertise to the public.

Note: The Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (FCIAA) is no longer part of the Radon and Indoor Air program, but part of the Division of Community Health Promotion, Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida.  FCIAA program staff share responsibility for the implementation and enforcement of the statewide ban of smoking tobacco in most workplaces with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.  Call the FCIAA hotline at (800) 337-3742, or (850) 245-4281.
