9-1-1 center personnel face exposure to legal liability both inside and outside the workplace.
While some of this is unavoidable due to the nature of the job, training and illustration of
potential pitfalls can serve to minimize potential risk. Drawn from real-world experiences, this
course provides practical suggestions on limiting PSAP personnel and 9-1-1 center liability.
Attendees will hear about the concepts underlying legal terms like "liability,” "damages,” and
Lessons learned from court cases will be used to provide examples of procedural
violations that formed the basis of lawsuits against PSAPs. Finally, the concept of privacy in the
dispatch center will be evaluated from a constitutional perspective and in light of the many rules
governing the confidentiality of medical information.
