The Converse Fire Department strives to make our community a better place! The Autism Treatment Center of San Antonio helped us implement training, throughout our department, to help educate and train us on management tips and considerations for special needs patients.
AUTISM AWARENESS STICKERS
WHAT IS IT?
In 2022, Converse Fire Department implemented a new program. This program offers stickers to members of our community that will alert emergency personnel that there is a special needs patient(s) in the car or residence.
WHERE SHOULD THIS STICKER BE LOCATED?
The program uses brightly colored stickers that are displayed in prominent locations, such as front doors or vehicle windows to alert the emergency responders.
HOW DO I GET A STICKER?
The stickers are available and FREE to Converse residents. They are located at both fire stations: 602 Toepperwein Road and 8425 Thornton Lane. You may pick one up in person or ask any medical personnel when you see them around the community!
