As firefighters we are required to be prepared to using our PASS alarms in case of an emergency.  PASS, in our world, stands for Personal Alert Safety System and is designed to sound an alarm should we go down on a scene and are unable to get out on our own.  With that in mind Firefighters vs Autism is proud to pioneer the first PUZZLE ALERT SAFETY SYSTEM or PASS Alarm for the Autism community to help those that are unable to save themselves.  Due to the problem of wandering within the ASD community, we felt it paramount that we establish a rapid alert and response system in an effort to help prevent needless tragedies.  We encourage you to sign up to receive our notifications via email and/or text in the event of a lost or wandering person on the spectrum.  With this system, we can get alerts out within minutes to people by zip code, towns/cities, municipalities, counties, states/provinces or even nationally.  Although this is a preliminary system that we are able to provide through our website, we are looking to expand this system nationally with an automated alert that can be integrated with first reponders partnering with media and cellular carriers.

Please help us save the life of someone on the autism spectrum.  Sign up today and if you ever get an alert, take two minutes to look around you.  Check your pool or your neighbors pool.  Look down your street, check the parking lot, a pond nearby.  Be aware and save a life!

Take two minutes – its not too much to ask!
