Free Disability Training for First Responders

Big Country News:

CLARKSTON – On Saturday, February 26, all local LEO, fire, EMS, SAR and others interested are invited to attend a FREE training session in Clarkston to learn techniques for working with individuals with autism.

For the training, the Isaac Foundation will be there to explain how to better interact with people who are autistic. Disability Action Center NW (DAC NW) will also have training materials on accommodations, service animals and Deaf Driver visor cards that will be given out for free to police and to the hearing impaired.

“You should plan on taking notes,” said Jeff Riechman, of Courageous Kids Climbing. “No there’s not a test, but trust me, the instructors will be sharing a ton of information.”

So far, the training has 32 people registered with room for more! Training will be held from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Asotin County Fire District building (2377 Appleside Blvd) in Clarkston. Reservations are encouraged. To reserve your spot, send an email to
