A government study (11-2015) reported that 1 and 45 children ages 3-17 have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The CDC reported that 3.5 million Americans have ASD. With greater awareness, these stickers can help alert EMS, Fire and Police responders that they may encounter a patient with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when responding to a call. The stickers are available on Cary Area EMS’s ambulances and at our station at 107 Medcon Court, Cary, NC. These stickers are available at no charge.
