Smokers are advised to be cautious with e-cigarette liquid nicotine and supplies. Keep them stored away from small children, and use them responsibly.

If you suspect nicotine poisoning, contact Poison Control at (800) 222-1222. As a reminder, Chemeketa is a vaping and a smoke free campus.

Using e-cigarettes on Chemeketa property is now prohibited on all property owned or controlled by Chemeketa. You can review the details of our smoke- free policy on Please notify Public Safety to report a violation of this policy.

The Chemeketa Board of Education decided at the end of the winter term to treat e-Cigarettes in the same way that conventional cigarettes are prohibited on all college campuses.

Previously, some instructors allowed e-Cigarettes while others did not.
