April is Autism Awareness Month, and Morehead City Fire-EMS is backing the mission for autism acceptance.
In addition to our crews wearing this shirt on the second day of their shifts this month, you can purchase shirts or a sticker through the Morehead City Fire & Rescue Auxiliary throughout April to support the Autism Society of North Carolina - Crystal Coast Chapter.
Shirts can be paid with cash or through Venmo @autismshirts, at Morehead City Fire-EMS Station 2, at 4034 Arendell Street. Orders can be accepted Monday - Friday, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. If you pay via Venmo, please include your name, t-shirt size(s), and if you will pick up or need to provide your shipping address.
They are $25 and can be shipped for $8 apiece.Sizes small - 3XL are available.
In addition, stickers are available for $5.
Morehead City Fire-EMS also has free stickers for those with an autistic family member who may be an occupant of their car or vehicle. These stickers help Firs Responders easily identify there may be an autistic individual inside when responding to a call. You can watch a video from the Morehead City Fire Department that details why this mission of autism acceptance is personal to our team.
