TAKE A DEEP BREATH: CAL STUDENTS HELP GET THE WORD OUT
Berkeley gets an A from the American Lung Association

Berkeley, California (Friday, March 14, 2008) - Berkeley’s new rules about smoking will get a little more attention starting on Saturday, when Cal students distribute hundreds of signs to businesses and other buildings in the smoke-free areas. Saturday is the last of three “Berkeley Project Days” that connect Cal student volunteers to the Berkeley community.

**Please note corrected sentence in bold below**
 
The window signs, which are being distributed to businesses, are free and available for pick up at the City’s Department of Public Health 1947 Center Street and at the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce at 1834 University Avenue.  Signs will be posted in parks later this spring.
