911READY BAGS ARE DESIGNED TO BE USED BY FIRE & RESCUE, EMS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES WHEN THEY ENCOUNTER AN AUTISTIC CHILD OR ADULT DURING AN EMERGENCY SITUATION. THE CONTENT OF THESE BAGS WERE DESIGNED TO INCLUDE SPECIFIC ITEMS THAT MAY HELP REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY OF AN AUTISTIC PERSON. FOR THIS REASON, 911READY BAGS MAY ALSO BE OF GREAT USE TO TEACHERS, PARENTS AND MANY OTHERS!
Only a few short days after receiving our 911READY Bags, Firefighters Maury and Gutierrez utilized one of the components of the bag, a weighted blanket. The 23 year old autistic male would not get up off of the ground. Once the blanket was placed, he became cooperative and let them take his vitals and allowed them to walk him to the ambulance. Smart, quick thinking on the part of our medics, and a fabulous resource provided by 911READY.
