Some senior staff members have already taken the three week class online. Dispatchers learn how to handle active shooter calls and prioritize them before dispatching to other agencies. The class features past recordings of shooter incidents so students can hear a correctly handled 911 call first hand. Students learn what questions to ask and how to relay that information to responders. Its stressed that dispatchers role is to keep responders updated on details like whos coming to help and when.
