The Foundation has much work to do, and as the old saying goes, “Many hands make work light”. To fulfill our mission we need the help of all who benefit from the service we received from 911 dispatchers, those who work within the 911 industry, and those with subject matter expertise. We need help in many forms including:
- The heartfelt concern, ideas, and grass-roots support of citizens who benefit from 911 services regarding our Mission (e.g., disseminating educational material on 911 stress management and health, visiting your local 911 center to experience PSTs in action and express gratitude for their work).
- Contributing Subject Matter Expertise: by learning more About Us, you’ll see the variety of experts we’re gathering to achieve the mission. If you’d like to help, we’d love to have you!
- Fundraising: while the Foundation is driven primarily by volunteer support, financial resources are greatly needed to: conduct, review, and provide scholarship incentives for research; produce and disseminate educational resources; cover expenses for advocacy efforts to assure 911 policy supports dispatcher health; provide aid for trauma therapy for dispatchers diagnosed with stress disorders when 911 insurance benefits and Employee Assistance Programs do not cover these services; and, provide for daily administrative leadership of the Foundation.
