Big Red Saftey Box

 The National Autism Association is granting some Big Red Safety Boxes away to families with autistic children.

Limit: one box per family.  Our grant inventory is limited to 2,000 boxes. In order to provide these resources to as many families as possible, only one (1) safety box request per household will be processed. If you have more than one child with autism and need additional ID’s, wristbands, etc., they can be purchased separately in our Big Red Safety Shop.  All printed materials can be downloaded for free at
NAA’s Big Red Safety Boxes have a retail value of $53.00.  They include extensive resources for caregivers to help prevent and respond to wandering incidents.  The contents of the box are as follows:
1) Educational materials and tools:
A caregiver checklist
A Family Wandering Emergency Plan
A first-responder profile form
A wandering-prevention brochure
A sample IEP Letter
2) Two (2) Door/Window Alarms with batteries (Please be aware that Door Alarm packaging contains three batteries small enough to swallow. Use extra caution when opening the packaging, and keep the batteries well out of the reach of children.)
3) One (1) RoadID Personalized, Engraved Shoe ID Tag*
4) Five (5) Laminated Adhesive Stop Sign Visual Prompts for doors and windows
5) Two (2) Safety Alert Window Clings for car or home windows
6) One (1) Red Safety Alert Wristband
*You will receive instructions to submit a custom personalization order online at Your tag will be quickly engraved with your emergency information and mailed to you at no charge.
