Emergency Dispatchers, The Forgotten First Responders
On this week’s episode, we take a look into the lives of emergency dispatchers. Our disaster weather expert and emergency dispatcher, Kyle Nelson, is the featured guest this week. Kyle talks about the challenges of being a dispatcher and urges all first responders to keep their dispatch center staff in mind when putting together debriefings and after-action discussions for all events, large or small. It’s important to remember these forgotten members of the emergency chain of survival and include them whenever we talk about our first responder community.
On the show this week are co-hosts Sam Bradley, disaster weather emergency manager, Becky DePodwin, Dr. Joe Holley, and Jamie Davis.
