Crisis Communications Tool Box will make you a more effective call taker and dispatcher. It will also increase responder safety and improve the chances of a successful outcome. As emergency communicators, we are vital caregivers in the public safety circle. What do we need to say to suicidal callers or depressed subjects? What do you need to know about Suicide-by-COP precipitators? How do we prepare the first responders with a picture of what they are responding to? How do we transition between being caregivers, information gatherers and tactical response dispatchers in suicidal caller events?
