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 find what may be making your asthma worse. With your permission, trained staff checks your home for things that may start asthma attacks.
- Who will check my home for asthma triggers?
Our Certified Asthma Educator and one of our Environmental Health Specialists 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 Certified Asthma Educator answer questions about asthma?
The Certified Asthma Educator will review the asthma plan and medicines with you. She will help you understand how to manage asthma. You should 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 from their visit to your house with your doctor or nurse.
- To arrange for a FREE home visit – call our Putting on AIRS Program Coordinator, Mary Buckley-Davis at 860-448-4882 extension 308.
