Do you want to make sure First Responders are educated on responding to people with disabilities?
The Niagara University First Responder Advocacy Training (FRAT) for Disability Advocates provides you with the opportunity to receive the tools to work with your police and fire departments, EMS/ambulance services and your 9-1-1 Call Centers to make sure they not only know your needs, but the needs of others in the disability community.
The First Responder Disability Awareness Training project at Niagara University is pleased to announce the South Dakota First Responder Advocacy Training for people with disabilities, disability advocates and those invested in the disability community.
This two-hour training provides you with guidance on how to advocate with first responders, inform them of your needs, how to be a partner with first responder agencies, and how to become a resource for those agencies.
Upon completion of a five-step follow-up program, participants will receive a certificate and be recognized as a FRAT Advocate. There is no fee. Registration is limited to the first 30 participants. This is a virtual training. Link to attend will be provided 1 hour before training begins.
