Make Prevention Your Priority

Lyme Connection's tick-borne disease prevention efforts focus on the BLAST Lyme Disease Prevention Program. This nationally recognized educational effort was created by the Ridgefield Health Department in 2008.The program is based on peridomestic Lyme disease prevention research conducted in Connecticut. The BLAST acronym – Bathe after outdoor activity, Look for Ticks and rashes, Apply repellent, Spray the yard and Treat pets - highlights five key evidence-based steps that may reduce the risk of tick-borne illnesses.
