Our mission is to teach all First Responders how to effectively interact with individuals with autism. The specialized training we provide,will educate Firefighters, EMT’s, Paramedics, Police Officers and Emergency Room Personal how to recognize people with autism.  The training will give students the tools needed to effectively communicate and interact with autistic individuals, as well as help reduce or eliminate dangerous behaviors.  We will give the parents and caregivers of people with autism peace of mind, knowing that First Responders in their community are prepared for this type of emergency.
