"This was a great show to share with our community, first responders and their families."
"In a world where the demands are increasing for job performance it is important to also recognize that first responders are human, we hurt, we need support and time to self care in order to stay well on the job. The Other Side of the Hero is an excellent tool that can be used to get the conversation going."
"What can you say about ‘The Other Side of the Hero’ Honesty and true to life in the realm of First responder world. Having spent nearly 4 decades in Emergency Telecommunications, what Dispatcher Lisa shares of her experiences in a line of duty death involving Police Officers is truly amazing. This should be in every Call Centre in the world. All of the speakers share some intimate details of ‘lived experiences’ that we all can learn from."
