Woodbury Police Officer appreciates autism training

woodburybadgeI just wanted to express my appreciation for your agency’s involvement in autism awareness and commitment to public education. I had the opportunity recently to attend a presentation by Paramedic Ernie Roettger on the topic of autism awareness and emergency management. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Ernie and am well aware of his ability focus his presentation to his audience.  Ernie is a dynamic presenter and has an innate ability to bring personal experience to the presentation that solidifies his message. 

I have been approached by numerous officers, some with decades of law enforcement experience, that after having attended the presentation that spoke highly of Ernie’s presentation. In the past, our education on the topic has been limited to video presentations which are dry and do not convey the personal impact that Ernie does.

Please feel free to share WPD’s appreciation for the work Ernie does for HCMC EMS and awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
