Cumulative Stress in Responders with Dan McGuire

After a friend of the show checked in to report on some personal cumulative stress issues as a paramedic, we decided to tackle this issue head on with the expert himself. We brought back Dan McGuire from CISM Perspectives to talk about updates to the ways work-related stress for first responders is handled. The biggest change Dan noted was a focus on building resiliency into initial first responder education and ongoing training before the critical incident occurs.

We also focus in on stress for dispatchers as part of the responder team and ancillary professions around disasters like meteorologists and reporters on the ground before, during, and after these events.

On the show this week are co-hosts Sam Bradley, disaster weather expert, Kyle Nelson, disaster weather emergency manager, Becky DePodwin, and Jamie Davis.
