Public Safety Personnel Learning About Autism

Right now, over 60 fire fighters and police officers are at our training academy learning more about Autism.

Captain Bill Cannata from the Westwood, MA Fire Department, who has an autistic son, developed this program and is today's instructor. The training is free thanks to a grant Bill received from the Dept. Of Homeland Security.

There are a few of our members in the class who have kids who are autistic.

I met Bill a couple of years ago at a conference and we have kept in touch hoping to be able to bring the training to Montgomery County.

The class was a sell out and we are hoping to bring Bill back in the near future.
Stay Safe,
