This week, Charleston County Telecommunicators attended a conference about stress management with the 911 Training Institute. Experts from the 911 Training Institute help equip telecommunicators with science-driven training in order to help them optimize self-care, peer support and home life balance. This training specifically focused on stress management tools such as breathing techniques and good sleep habits.
“Charleston County truly cares about and supports our telecommunicators,” said 911 Director Jim Lake. “Our telecommunicators are the lifeline for this community and our first responders and play an integral role in keeping people safe. That is why we make it a priority to bring in the 911 Training Institute every few years to help staff manage the day to day pressures of the job. We hope this hiring event will help fill some of our openings so that we can cut down on overtime and avoid burnout while maintaining a level of excellent service to our community.”
