Plan to attend the Sensory Friendly First Responder Meet and Greet

Sioux County Emergency Management is hosting a First Responder Meet and Greet. This event will take place at the Orange City Fire Department on Tuesday, August 2, from 6pm-8pm.

For some children with disabilities, the bright lights and loud sounds from emergency vehicles can be very overwhelming. Learning to interact with emergency responders is just as important for the children as it is for the emergency responders to understand disability so they can respond effectively and safely.

If you have any additional questions about the event, contact Sioux County Emergency Management Director Nate Huizenga at 712.737.4010.
