Public Safety Now: Ensuring Emotional Health for Public Safety Workers in Times of Challenge
 
Interview with Jim Marshall
and Tracy Eldridge

And right now is a time when people’s batteries are going to be drained down far more every day because of all the uncertainty and the increased lack of control. So, what we want to do is reset, even during hot calls, you can take deep breaths while they’re talking, when you’re entering into CADS. I call it ‘CAD breathing’.

Episode 14: Be Like a Redwood Tree 
 
Interview with Ryan Dedmon

If you're happy and healthy, you show up to work and you're a better employee. If you're a better employee, that spreads like wildfire and before you know it everyone on your shift feels like you do. We raise the morale in our Comm Centers and at our agencies, and then working as a dispatcher isn't all the doom and gloom we sometimes stereotypically portray it to be.

Episode 193: The Resilient 9-1-1 Professional
 
Interview with Jim Marshall  

The answer (to dispatcher stress challenges) isn't doing something for 911 dispatchers, it's empowering them with the Resilient 9-1-1 Mindset. We have phenomenal people who have hit the wall with PTSD...who are in despair and they are literally struggling with thoughts of suicide because they think they will suffer the rest of their lives... They can heal. EMDR...is an Evidence Based Treatment...

Ricardo: I was pretty much killing myself slowly, just through food really. A few weeks back I wrote, "Sugar We're Goin' Down!", because sugar is a big part of what I've been dealing with.    

Ryan: I'm sitting here having lunch with my friend and I order a salad. She ridicules me. And so I explain: "I have a couple of knucklehead friends who roped me into doing this fitness challenge.

NATIONAL 911 PROGRAM

Pursuing Wellness & Peak Performance in the NG911 PSAP

Presented by Jim Marshall

Usually during this first segment we have someone from a federal agency presenting, but every once in a while there is an issue that is so prevalent at the national level that we decide to devote some time to it; and certainly the wellness of the 911 telecommunicator is one of those issues. So we were really happy to get Jim Marshall to present today.

Episode 20: Protecting the 911Pros Family Life
Interview with Jim Marshall
and Dee Ann Summersett 

When you come home from the center, your body's there but your brain hasn't caught up yet. There are few jobs in which people are dealing with such hot, fresh, intense trauma drama. For you as frontline dispatchers to have a way to attend to your own stress, to be able to take those breaths and say, "Okay I did hard work today, but what still stands out in my mind?... that call when that baby stopped breathing. Now what do I do with that before I enter into the house... as a human being?"
