TPSO DISPATCHERS CERTIFIED LIFE-SAVERS
 
 
 
 

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office dispatchers have a new life-saving tool they can

use without leaving their desks or taking off their headsets.

All of the office’s dispatchers – plus their supervisor – are now certified to perform

“Telephone CPR” if a caller has an emergency requiring the measure but either doesn’t

know what to do or may require coaching.

“This is a measure that we hope our dispatchers will not ever have to use,” said the

TPSO’s Chief Deputy, Col. Terry Daigre. “But for the rare cases where this

may be necessary, they are trained and ready.”

CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is defined by the American Heart

Association as an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart

stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac

arrest.

Dispatchers are seen as true first responders in cases where, with the help of a caller,

they can verify that a patient being called about is in cardiac arrest.

As medical resources are notified, the caller can be instructed to perform CPR,

in accordance with the protocols dispatchers have learned in their training.

“In the radio room we are called on to do many things,” said Sgt. Debbie Maisog,

TPSO’s dispatch supervisor. “With this training, if a need comes up, we can

now all be confident that we can deliver the level of assistance required in this type

of emergency.”
