Being in a leadership position in a public safety agency is a demanding role. Telecommunicators regularly handle life-or-death situations, including shootings and natural disasters. These crises can be emotionally draining for employees and communities.
The 2017 Professional Development Series will cover what telecommunicators need to know about the specific needs of autistic individuals, how to maintain a healthy work/life balance, how to keep citizens and responders safe during train derailments and best practices regarding the use of social media.
Take advantage of the entire series for $75, or pick and choose which sessions to attend for $25 each. Sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MARC Conference Center and include a catered lunch.
