  • In this episode, we introduce you to Jennifer Combs from Healthy Mothers, MSN, ARNP, Healthy Babies Coalition of Broward, Inc. and Captain James Carrol from Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue. These two fantastic people have teamed up for about the last ten years to create and grow the Direct On Scene Education Program, more commonly called DOSE. DOSE is an innovative attempt at eliminating sleep-related infant death due to suffocation, strangulation or positional asphyxia by using First Responders to identify and remove hazards while delivering education on scene. First Responders are trained to identify and remove hazards from an infant's sleep space while on scene during emergency and non-emergency 911 calls. To learn more about how you can implement DOSE or to obtain more info, go to their website, DOSEprogram.com. Our guests give us the real-world facts as well as the intent and purpose of the DOSE Program. Then, they’ll provide real life examples of how DOSE has made a continuous positive impact on the number of sleep-related infant deaths each year. Finally, we will walk you through how first responders and their agencies can implement DOSE and make a huge impact in their community.
