No Intervention: Control
Participants randomized to the control arm receive no telephone simulation training.
Experimental: Simulation Training
Participants randomized to the intervention arm receive telephone simulation training.
Behavioral: Telephone simulation training
The intervention consists of four 20-minute telephone simulation training sessions over a 4 month period (one session each month). Each 20-minute training session will include 3 simulated 9-1-1 calls, performed by a standardized caller (trained actor) and feedback will be provided right away by a trained observer who takes notes during the simulation calls and discusses the teaching points after the session. In total, the 9-1-1 dispatchers will receive 12 different simulated calls.
- Change in elapsed seconds from call answer to start of telephone-cardiopulmonary resuscitation (T-CPR) instructions in cardiac arrest calls in simulations and in actual calls. [ Time Frame: Once monthly over 4 months (during simulations); at event (actual cardiac arrest 9-1-1 call) over 12 months. ]
- Change in proportion of calls with querying behaviors compliant with the "all-callers" interviewing protocol. [ Time Frame: Once monthly over 4 months (during simulations); at event (actual cardiac arrest 9-1-1 call) over 12 months. ]
