Disability awareness training has tailored a presentation for 911 telecommunicators. It brings together education on disabilities while enhancing sensitivity. The presentation includes definitions of disabilities with an emphasis on speech, etiquette and interaction skills, the perspective of individuals with disabilities, and current trends and topics, all relevant to 911 operations.
Disability awareness incorporates sensitivity training so the audience can empathize with the injustices individuals with disabilities face. Videos, extensive materials and resources, federal guidelines, and current best practices will highlight the content and allow attendees to best understand how to address services necessary to serve all citizens in their community.
In this full-day course, students are exposed to a riveting, emotional roller coaster of critical 911 failures that occurred the night Denise was kidnapped, raped, and murdered. Nathan Lee, founder and President of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation, and a 911 professional tie together the elements of the Denise Amber Lee tragedy. A positive and uplifting presentation, students will learn of the obvious failures that day to the more in-depth concepts such as leadership, hiring, training and encouraging employees in a communications center.
