Daphne Fire Dept. helps people with disabilities in a new way

Goodwill Easterseals provided the Daphne Fire Department with items to better serve individuals with disabilities within the community. The items included  Healthcare Communication Boards and Health and Sensory Social Emotional Picture Card sets. Adam Byrd, Lieutenant of the Daphne Fire Department, hopes that the items will “bridge the communication gap” between the department and the citizens it serves. This is one of many steps that the fire department will take to adapt its services for people of all abilities. We appreciate you, Daphne Fire Department!
