On this episode of the Disaster Podcast, we have a special guest on the show to talk about the importance of taking on toxic leadership environments head on and knowing when it’s time to cut your losses and leave. Hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley are joined by Dr. Jullette Saussy. Dr. Saussy was the medical director for New Orleans Fire and EMS Department during the Hurricane Katrina response and aftermath. She later was asked to become the medical director of the beleaguered Washington, D.C. Fire Department. Jullette talks with us candidly about her experience in our nation’s capital and the toxic situation she encountered within the fire department leadership there.
