Hello folks and welcome to another installment of the Emergency Services Series I have been working on in class for my Masters program. The first part involved the K-9 Unit of the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department, the second involved Joel Thompson of Plainwell EMS, and this part features Allegan County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Brown. I hope you enjoy another story from the field of emergency services.

Today, August 24 2017 marks the one year anniversary of when I started the #IAM911 movement. In this episode we will take a look back at why I started it, the explosion, media coverage and the future of the movement. It has been one hell of a year and I thank all of you for the support. I may have started this but it is because of the entire Thin Gold Line that made it a global success.
If you have any comments, questions or you would like to be a guest on the show send an email to email@example.com.

Hello folks! Recently I have been talking about Kickstarter and a new project I have been working on based on my Within the Trenches segment on Jabber Log. For those who don’t know about this segment, it’s based on my experience as a 9-1-1 operator. I have shared stories from the beginning of my career where the first real call I took was face-to-face when the chief was on his way out on my first night alone off training and a lady ran in yelling that her husband had killed himself. Within the Trenches has evolved over the past year with stories that have gone from text to audio and video.
This segment has been a big draw for my blog and ever since I started in this profession I have wanted to show people what we do and what we go through. With this new project on Kickstarter, I will do just that…well with your help, I will do just that. For those who don’t know what Kickstarter is, I have included an excerpt from their site. In their own words,
“Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Since our launch on April 28, 2009, over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding more than 30,000 creative projects.”
With that said I am trying to raise $1,500 for the equipment needed in order to make the show come to life. There are some guidelines that need to be followed though. This project campaign will last until Friday Jan 11, 10:35pm. So what that means is that I have until that date and time to raise the funds. No one will be charged until that day but here’s the thing. Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal so if I am unable to make my goal I get nothing and you don’t get charged. This is good and bad in a sense but if it goes south then it wasn’t meant to be. Some incentives for pledging money to make this project a reality are rewards. I will provide a link that will show all the rewards offered for pledges below. The shirts with the Within the Trenches logo are already sought out so pledge while you can. Thank you very much for your consideration and help. I hope this show can become a reality and that our stories behind the mic will educate and inspire you.Post Views: 304

For a limited time only the CodeSeven Podcast Network is taking orders for the new AudioVillains t-shirt. It’s sexy as hell and only $16! In order to get a t-shirt you need to scroll down on this page and look to the far right. You will see a PayPal button that says, “Donate to the CodeSeven Podcast Network.” Once you click on the button it will take you to a form. The purpose will say something like, “Donate to Within the Trenches.” I know the name is different but it is only because I can’t change the name without creating an entirely new button. Since I am pressed for time I am not going to create a new button. It all goes to the same place either way. So fill out the form, donate $16 and your reward is a brand new t-shirt. Once you have done so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the size(s) you need. Orders will be taken from 1/08 – 01/13 at midnight. Once we hit the 13th at midnight we will no longer take new orders.
Our awesome friends over at Threadsy are hooking us up so make sure to check them out and like them on Facebook!Post Views: 315
