Episode 19: The Rest of the Story with Sherri Stigler

Sherri Stigler (USA)
Training and Operations Manager at Waukesha County Communications, Wisconsin

Sherri is a 30-year “survivor” of the public safety community, serving in the capacity of police officer, firefighter, EMT-B, AHA CPR / first aid instructor, emergency dispatcher, and communications supervisor.

She is a columnist for the Journal of Emergency Dispatch magazine at the International Academy of Emergency Dispatch® (IAED) and has written many articles emphasizing public safety and 911 education.

She was the winner of the 2017 IAED Research Poster award for her poster, “Providing Dispatchers ‘The Rest of the Story,” in which she describes a new process by which Waukesha County is providing outcome information about STEMI patients to the Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs) who handled their calls. Her pilot study shows that EMDs have responded very positively to the approach and have shown an increased understanding of their critical role in the Chain of Survival.
