Medic One Foundation funds Dispatch Academy to teach 9-1-1 dispatchers how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates


Today, Seattle Medic One and King County EMS conducted the Dispatch Academy, a program funded by the Medic One Foundation that is designed to teach 9-1-1 dispatchers how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates in their communities. The program gives antendees an in-depth, comprehensive look at the King County Dispatcher-Assisted CPR program and provides mentoring for the development of a dispatcher training program. Effective Dispatcher-Assisted CPR programs can effectively double the rate of community bystander CPR. The Dispatch-Assisted CPR programs in Seattle and King County play a critical role in our region achieving a cardiac arrest survival rate that is almost twice the national average.

The academy is being held at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center in Burien from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
