Asthma Trigger Management

It is the position of the FAC that all Multi-Housing Units in Florida should be smoke-free, moisture-free, pest-free, and have heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment serviced and maintained according to industry accepted standards. Additionally, gas stoves and other appliances should be vented to the outside.

These recommended criteria were created by the Florida Asthma Coalition's Home Visiting Workgroup and can be used as a reliable tool and resource for health care professionals during Home Visits. Information about allergens and irritants, asthma education for caregivers, home visit resources and supplies, an 'Asthma Home Environment Checklist' and, information about toxic stress are all included in this easy to read document.
