Tick Warning Signs

PARTNERING UP TO RAISE AWARENESS!

PA Lyme Resource Network’s Dare 2B Tick Aware™ program, in partnership with Get Outdoors PA, is bringing TICK WARNING SIGNS to our communities.  We’re working hard to get these signs prominently posted in parks and athletic fields across Pennsylvania.

We want to empower people to better protect themselves and stay safer while enjoying the outdoors!

From family walks and bike rides at local parks to playing favorite sports at nearby fields, people are getting outdoors … and we want them to know how to better protect themselves from ticks and the devastating diseases they transmit.

Awareness and prevention are more crucial than ever.  That’s why we continue our mission to bring tick-borne disease education, support and advocacy to our communities.

Here’s how to order tick warning signs for your local parks and fields:

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

This is a great sign!  We are placing them in local parks, community gardens, and local student sports fields.  The signs hit all the main prevention points and will definitely help prevent new cases of Lyme disease.

It’s important to have outdoor signs to make people aware of the simple precautions that can be taken to avoid the possible long-term health effects of a single tick bite. My experience is that people think that a tick will bite someone else, that Lyme will affect someone else, and it’s all short-term anyway. If we can encourage even 50% of park-goers to use tick repellent, it will drop PA statistics of new infections every year and keep hundreds of families safe.
