New Hampshire's Catholic Medical Center is distributing color wristbands to help children learn how to avoid potentially dangerous ticks.

Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas is proclaiming this week "Tick Awareness Week" in the city. He'll join hospital officials and the city's public health director on Monday to accept a box of the wristbands to distribute to families.

The wristbands feature images of ticks, which can cause Lyme disease.
