Asthma Action Plans

An asthma action plan is a one-page guide that your doctor, nurse or asthma educator completes for you or your child. The plan explains what to do during an asthma attack when asthma symptoms get worse. Give a copy of your child's asthma action plan to the school nurse, child care provider, baby sitters, family members and other caregivers.

To order, please call Maine Asthma Prevention and Control Program at (207) 287–3041.
