911READY Bags are designed to be used by Fire & Rescue, EMS and Law Enforcement Agencies when they encounter an autistic child or adult during an emergency situation. The content of these bags were designed to include specific items that may help reduce stress and anxiety of an autistic person. For this reason, 911READY Bags may also be of great use to teachers, parents and many others!
Only a few short days after receiving our Mimi’s Mission 911READY Bags, Firefighters Maury and Gutierrez utilized one of the components of the bag, a weighted blanket. The 23 year old autistic male would not get up off of the ground. Once the blanket was placed, he became cooperative and let them take his vitals and allowed them to walk him to the ambulance. Smart, quick thinking on the part of our medics, and a fabulous resource provided by Mimi’s Mission.

- The 911READY bags work!!! We recently had a call of a teenager going through a difficult time and having an outburst. Sgt. Wheeler recognized some of the emotions from his training with the 911Ready program and he grabbed the bag and put it to use! The situation was quickly and peacefully resolved without any further incident. Thank you to Mimi's Mission for making this great program and allowing Brownstown Charter Township, Michigan to be the first to receive these bags!
From the bottom of my heart I wanna thank you! My son was rushed to Children's Hospital by ambulance last Wednesday and your bag with the weighted blanket, fidget toys and headphones saved us, my son already sick was nervous and having all those items helped calm him in the ambulance and at the hospital. It meant so much to us. Thank you again!
