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 maintaining a healthy work/life balance, how to keep citizens and responders safe during train derailments and best practices regarding the use of social media.
The cost to attend a session is $25. Sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MARC Conference Center and include a catered lunch.
