Time: Tuesday, January 3, 2012 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST
Speakers: Lisa Braxton (National Fire Protection Association) and Captain Bill Cannata (Westwood, MA Fire Department)
An emergency can occur with little or no warning and can be stress inducing. It is important for people with autism and their families to be prepared as much as possible ahead of time for emergencies. In this webinar, our presenters will provide information on fire and life safety tips, safety drills, and building relationships with emergency responders. Webinar attendees will also hear about an educational tool designed to help children who have autism know how to respond if firefighters come to their home.
