Mid-Atlantic Life Safety Conference
Griffin Team contributed our expertise on advocating for service dogs and their handlers in emergency situations at this conference with a well-received session of Pawsitive Interactions with Service Dogs During Response Operations at the 2022 Mid Atlantic Life Safety Conference.
Trans-focused wellness provider
Griffin worked with a transgender-focused bodyworks practitioner who provides innovative and customized therapeutic care to clients across the gender spectrum in the DC metro area. Griffin provided program management support to this vital community empowerment provider.
Here's what our clients say about Griffin's work:
The most helpful part of the training was "the legalities when it comes to service dogs. What’s best to do. And hearing from those who have service dogs. Pretty much the entire training was helpful" (DC-area Fire Marshal)
Griffin's training addressed the problem of "too many EMS professionals who are unaware (of citizens with service dogs) and should receive additional training to better accommodate service animals" - Ligia Aldir, Paramedic and Fellow in the American Academy of Case Management (FAACM) (shared with permission)
Pawsitive Interactions with Service Dogs During Response Operations taught one participant "how to approach the (service) dog in the event of an emergency/crisis."
The most helpful part of the training was "clarifying the difference between service animals and emotional support animals," Ellen Kurland, DC FIRE & EMS Paramedic (shared with permission)
