10/15 SEPTAR Presentation: Emergencies & Our Kids With Limited Communication

Please come join SEPTAR and the Woodside Fire Protection District in presenting "When Words Are Not Enough, An educational tool for Fire Department personnel and other First Responders."

We will watch the video used to train San Mateo County emergency professionals, then talk about not only how "communicating with individuals who have impaired communication skills due to various physical, psycho-social, developmental, and or learning disabilities can be extremely challenging to first responders at an emergency scene,"  but how we can better prepare both our children and first responder professionals to handle such emergencies. Please do bring questions!
  • Thursday, October 15
  • 7:00 PM
  • Redwood City School District Offices
  • 750 Bradford Street
  • Redwood City, CA 94063
Free Spanish Translation and babysitting are always provided. Please contact me if you have any questions.
