Our field responders are experiencing new challenges and there are more "ambush" situations occurring than ever before in modern law enforcement history. Hardly a day goes by where we don't hear about a call for service that went "bad" and a member of law enforcement was put in great peril.
In 2017, 135 law enforcement officers lost their lives in the line of duty. That is a 10% higher rate than 2015. We also lost over 85 Firefighter & EMS members in the line of duty, or as a result of their work.
What can your 9-1-1 team do to increase safety and lower death rates for our responders?
Topics in this course include:
This class will cover call taking skills to use, dispatching skills to know and the risk of cutting corners or not being ready for the worst. If your agency uses protocol based questioning, don't worry, we follow proven practices that will keep your call takers compliant but increase responder safety.
PSTC is known for their unique approach of "lessons learned". We want every student to have takeaways that they can use immediately when they return to work. We also discuss the importance of reviewing agency-specific policy, process, guidelines and how to use regional and agency resources.
As always, we do case study analysis to illustrate what went well and where we can improve. We will cover the Law, Fire and EMS risk so that all responders are covered.
