First Responder Training Resources

After a generous donor offered to support an Autism training video for first responders, the Autism Society of Central Texas worked with Red Media Group, Chester Security, parents and individuals with Autism to create a free training video for first responders. The video is 26 minutes long and includes information about Autism to educate and inform various first responder groups who may encounter individuals with Autism in their community.

It is recommended to show this video then use the National Autism Association (NAA) Big Red Safety Toolkit to further educate first responders about Autism. It is available as a free download here.
