Sensory Tools now on board

New Providence ambulances are now equipped with sensory tools that can help bring comfort to children and adults with special needs. Each ambulance has a kit that includes a weighted blanket, noise-cancelling headphones, sunglasses to dim bright lights and a variety of sensory/fidget items intended to reduce stress and anxiety. A communication tool is available for non-verbal individuals to be able to describe their pain to first responders as well as understand what is happening. This initiative is a partnership between New Providence EMS and the New Providence Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG).
