STICKER PROGRAM ASSISTS 1ST RESPONDERS HELP PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

The Sioux City Police and Fire Rescue Departments have teamed up to offer a new program to the community.

Police Chief Rex Mueller says the Special Response Static Sticker Program will inform first responders if there are people with special needs in a home they are dispatched to in times of emergency:

OC……….who is diabetic. :21

The program was an idea of Officer Donette Sassman:

OC………..For Sioux City. :20

The stickers are meant to be placed in the rear windshield of a vehicle or front window of a home.

That lets first responders know there could be a party inside who might not respond to verbal commands or may use alternative methods of communication.

Several local agencies will distribute the stickers along with Police and Fire Headquarters.
