Post Falls Police is providing free Autism ID Cards available for pick up at the police department. We’re open 24/7 and located at 1717 E. Polston Avenue in Post Falls.
The Autism ID Card helps people on the autism spectrum explain their medical condition to police, EMTs, and other first responders when contacted.
People on the autism spectrum can present the Autism ID Card to emergency personnel in inform them about their diagnosis and notify who to contact for assistance.
SEO Pittsburgh, a web development company owned and operated by individuals on the autism spectrum, developed the Austim ID Card. Due to the stress of an emergency situation, people with autism are frequently unable to communicate the nature of their condition, and first responders may misinterpret their behavior.
