We Need Your Help
Normally we are the lifeline to the public, but now we need your help. Currently many 9-1-1 operators in B.C. are experiencing:
- High turnover and chronic vacancies of the profession throughout Canada;
- An astonishingly low retirement rate (97% of emergency dispatchers in North America will not work in this field long enough to retire);
- Increasing workload and an overwhelming amount of overtime, that results in burnout and major increases in sick time;
- Increased exposure to traumatic incidents with an increased workload (32% of 9-1-1 calls can create high stress in operators which can affect mental health)
