Crisis Management Response in Eugene, Oregon with Michelle Perin

Disaster-Podcast-Perin-Volunteer-Crisis-ManagementAuthor and experienced first responder and author Michelle Perin joins hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis on the show at EMS World Expo 2017 to talk about her experiences across several aspects of emergency services. Michelle has been a dispatcher for police officers, a fire-fighter, EMT and crisis management responder.

Michelle shares how she got started with CAHOOTS, a volunteer crisis management team for medical and mental health calls in Eugene Oregon. CAHOOTS stands for “Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets.” Her team responds through the police department’s dispatch center to bring a mental health professional and an EMT or paramedic to situations requiring crisis intervention on the scene of an emergency call.
