On Sunday November 24, Cooper City and the Town of Davie will be hosting the Sixth Annual Autism Awareness Day at Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Station 28.
This family-fun event will offer an opportunity for those who are affected by autism to learn more about local resources available to them. In addition, people with autism will have the opportunity to meet firefighter/paramedics and law enforcement officers in full uniform and gear, tour their emergency vehicles and see their equipment in a controlled, non-threatening environment.
Deputies from the Broward Sheriff’s Office and firefighters from Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue will be joined by officers from the Davie Police Department and Davie Fire Rescue firefighters. As first responders, it’s important that public safety personnel know how to manage any incident involving people with disabilities.
Lunch will be provided to all, compliments of the Davie Professional Firefighters and Benevolent Association Local 2315 and the Broward County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Local 4321.
