ISAAC Foundation believes that safer encounters between first responders and individuals touched by autism and other special needs begins with positive experiences and plenty of practice. That's why ISAAC Foundation works with local agencies to provide monthly station visits that include participation by fire, law enforcement and EMS transport units.
Special needs station visits help desensitize and prepare special needs individuals to appropriately interact with first responders in a fun and stress free environment. These visits also give first responders an opportunity to gain experience interacting with individuals with disabilities.
Siblings and parents are invited to share in the fun and families are encouraged to attend as often as they like to maintain skills.
Visits are available both in the City of Spokane and City of Spokane Valley, but space is limited - so a RSVP is required. Attendees will receive an email with location and parking instructions within 24 hours of registration.
PLEASE NOTE: First responder staffing must remain a top priority. Therefore, law enforcement personnel may be called away due to an emergent community safety need.
