Putting on AIRS

Putting On AIRS (Asthma Indoor Risk Strategies) for Residents of New London County is a program of the New London County Asthma Action Partnership.

Putting on AIRS helps you learn more about asthma. With your permission, trained staff checks your home for things that may make your asthma worse.

  • Who will check my home for asthma triggers?
    Our Asthma Educator and one of our Sanitarians will visit your home. They will go over their findings with you. They may make suggestions to help you control your child’s (or your) asthma.
  • Will the Asthma Educator answer questions about asthma?
    The Asthma Educator will review your medical provider’s asthma plan and your asthma medicines with you. She will help you understand how to better control your asthma. You should always speak with your doctor or nurse when you have questions or when you have problems with your asthma.
  • What happens then?
    Putting on AIRS staff will share the findings and suggestions with your doctor with your permission.
