Family360 has tracking abilities.

An app like Emergency Contact and ICE Standard could pull up a digital contact on her phone to show if needed in emergency situations.

There are many apps out there now with many different features! I would love feedback on what you end up deciding on to share feedback with other families!

Feeling Safe, Being Safe: Attached file

This is a resource we can use for making an emergency contact plan for Cassia. We could turn the information from this file into a smaller wallet/card as well. This could be worked on in one of her Transition/Life Skills classes. I have included Kristy on the email so she has access to this resource as well. Once we have all the information needed, we can have this information in different formats such as on paper as well as accessible in an app on phone/iPad.

Utah’s 911 website: https://911.utah.gov/

Good way to find local non-emergency numbers for safety needs. You could save this as a bookmark on iPad or mobile phone
