“The goal of our First Responders Event is to create an environment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, along with their caregivers, to interact with first responders in a relaxed informal setting. It’s two-fold; to increase communication and decrease the possibility of negative encounters in the event of emergency situations. This will provide responders with and avenue to build relationships and trust within the community”.
