KEEP YOUR LOVED ONES SAFE IN AN EMERGENCY

These movable, static WINDOW and DOOR FRAME DECALS alert First Responders and Emergency Personnel that they are responding to a call where an individual on the autism spectrum may be present. This will allow them to provide a more informed and supportive response.
Display the stickers in a visible location in your home or vehicle.
 
NOTE: For privacy concerns, the door frame sticker can be applied on the side of the door frame so that it is only visible when the door is opened.

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
