I have experienced a lot in my life and being a 9-1-1 supervisor has allowed me to learn more about emergency services and those who work in the field. Today I got the chance to interview Joel Thompson, a Plainwell EMS paramedic. The audio story, which can be heard by following the link below, sheds light on what makes him tick, his educational background and what he enjoys most about his job. A big thanks goes out to Thompson, Plainwell EMS, and Allegan County Central Dispatch for assisting in this project.

Hello all, I usually wait until a little later to post on Jabber Log but I woke up this morning to an excellent find. I love my iPhone 4 but I like to customize my board with Winterboard backgrounds or an added spot on the dock. It’s nice to have the ability to do this but all of that goes away once you update or if you accidentally update like my fool ass did, you end up screwed. Well if you are like me and you have a Verizon iPhone with firmware 4.2.7 a jailbreak has finally been released! If you don’t know what jailbreaking is you can Google it or the gist of it is that it allows you gain access to the entire phone where before Apple had it locked away. It also gives you the luxury of using third-party applications that make your iPhone even better. Now I assume you are wondering if this is legal or not and I can tell you right now that it is completely legal under the DMCA of 2010. In the US it is legal to jailbreak your phone but Apple has said that it violates your warranty so do what you will but I like the freedom.
So if you are on 4.2.7 and have been waiting for a clean jailbreak, you can use sn0wbreeze 2.6.1. If you had no patience and used redsn0w like I did there is also a solution for you. I will have a link to an article below that will lead you to further info but there is a way to untether you tethered jailbreak. A big thanks to all those involved in bringing this jailbreak to the public. Happy days are here again and watch your updates or you will be screwed again!

According to her organizations official website, “she rose through the ranks from Dispatcher to Director and is now an International Speaker.” She has traveled throughout the United States with those who work within her organization to help coach and train 9-1-1 dispatchers. The training programs range from a 40-hour beginners dispatch school to stress management. Coming this October, Rasmussen, along with the rest of her Success Communications Inc. instructors, are hosting the 9114911 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
