First Responder Information Form for Students with Disabilities
In an effort to improve community relationships among first responders and people with disabilities, the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, the Baldwin County School District, and the Baldwin County 911 Center are collaborating to assist families that may have communication concerns in the event of an emergency. The Baldwin County 911 Center would like to offer our families the opportunity to keep information about their children on file if he/she has special needs. This information would assist first responders in knowing that there is an individual with special needs present in the home who might respond in a different manner to an unfamiliar person. The badge can be worn in the community, and it can be personalized to add any information that would help comfort the individual when they are upset or scared.
If you are interested in your family member taking advantage of this service and receiving a lanyard with a badge from the Baldwin County 911 center identifying them as a person with a disability, please notify Deputy Stephanie Holland, School Resource Officer, via email or telephone. Deputy Holland’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org, and the phone number is (478)- 457-2478. The attached form can be returned to Deputy Holland’s email address or mailed to her: Deputy Stephanie Holland at 220 North ABC Street, Milledgeville, GA 31061.
When the COVID -19 pandemic is over, we hope to host an event that would allow your family to meet the first responders. This would help your family member to become familiar with the first responders, their uniforms, and vehicles. We look forward to partnering with you to continue to support our children with special needs.
