Good evening folks! The AudioVillains are back with episode 11 of the JCast on Jabber Log! This week, Eddie and I took the reigns as a duo and although our third AudioVillain Mike had a prior engagement we kicked ass and took names. We used the upstairs portion of the Ingarden Studios and I must say that the audio came out a lot better than past episodes. Our topics this week dealt with politics, movies, music, and a little bit of Jabber Log’s Tech Thursday. On September 12 2012, Apple revealed the new iPhone 5 and made their new operating system iOS6 available to developers. The new iOS will not be available to the public until next week but if you want to get it early you can head over to lifehacker.com for links to every iDevice and download it for free. We also mentioned the upcoming movie DREDD 3D and the awesome song on the trailer by La Roux (Skream Remix) called In for the Kill. Make sure to check it out, listen to the podcast and share to everyone you know! Cheers!

Hello everyone and welcome back! Whitney and I return with episode 39 of Within the Trenches. In this episode we visit with Daniel, the “Small Town Dispatcher” and host of Nighttime Dispatch Radio. He shares some of his calls, how he got his start and what influenced him to start his Small Town Dispatcher blog. We also share a few stories of our own on what it’s like to have to find time to use the bathroom when in the hot seat. Finally we share our thoughts on an issue that hits home to all 9-1-1 professionals out there. The first 911 call received was on February 16, 1968 at City Hall in Haleyville, AL. Well this building is in danger of being demolished and possibly turned into a chain pharmacy. Check out the links below and sign the petition to help save this piece of 9-1-1 history. As always you can email the show at email@example.com.

I am Rob McMullen, ENP, your current North-Central Regional Director. Serving on the NENA Executive Board for the past two years has been an honor. I am pleased with the accomplishments of the association during my tenure on the board. Increasing membership and ENPs, creation of the TC Caucus and telecommunicator membership category, and attempting to standardize telecommunicator training are a few things that I think have really strengthened our great association. But there is more work to be done. I want to be a part of the future growth and enhancement. My experience has prepared me for the new challenge of running for NENA 2nd Vice President.
NENA is more than just an association to me, it is a resource and lifeline for PSAPs and telecommunicators. I recognized after attending my first Indiana state NENA conference in 2003 that NENA provided an opportunity to network and enhance training in the 9-1-1 industry. I knew I wanted to be a part of this association and their mission. I got involved in state conference planning and then ran for state office, becoming president of the Indiana Chapter in 2008. I couldn’t stop there. I attended my first national level conference and I was hooked! TDC/ODC was not what I had expected. It was a working conference and they wanted MY help. I was blown away by the opportunities to develop policy and procedures for the industry. I started in the public education and training committee; worked on joint NENA/APCO focus groups sharing 9-1-1 operational information with many private companies rolling out new products and services; chaired the devices and sensors working group and co-chaired the Contingency Planning sub-committee. I also participated in the last revision of the ENP Reference Manual. My work on national committees taught me that it is vital that the PSAP has a voice on the board. That motivated me to run for North-Central Regional Director and is motivating me to take the next step in running for NENA 2nd Vice President. I am the voice of the PSAP and I take that responsibility seriously.
NENA hasn’t only helped in my job, but also in my career. I started as a dispatcher in 1998, became a dispatch supervisor in 2003 and a center director in 2011. I believe that my NENA training and experience, ENP and CMCP played a big factor in landing the job as the 9-1-1 Director of Vigo County 9-1-1. Going from Dispatcher to Director gives me the perspective needed to act as an advocate for the PSAPs and the telecommunicators in our association, as well as for management and operations. My 17 years’ experience in the 9-1-1 industry demonstrates constant personal growth and development. I have worked in small and average sized centers and have a unique understanding of the concerns and issues facing the majority of PSAPs in North America and beyond.
I have been a featured speaker at local, state and national public safety conferences. I have had the opportunity to travel to different chapter conferences in my region and have learned that 9-1-1 works differently in different areas, but that there are many commonalities. This is a great industry full of wonderful people.
My involvement in NENA has required personal commitment and dedication, and the rewards have been great. I have developed lifelong friendships, acquired a vast knowledge of 9-1-1, enhanced my career and even honed my “people skills”. I have been a part of something great and want to continue to serve in this new capacity for NENA.
I look forward to earning your trust and hope that I can count on your vote. A vote for me for NENA 2nd VP is a vote for every PSAP in North America!

well i guess my funniest and worse diaper change was when my son poop while in his jumparoo and I didn’t know it. Poop had went done both legs and he was jumping in it, when I picked him up my hand got poop all over it, than I tried to get his socks and baby legs off without touch more poop and when the sock came off poop slung all over the wall. My baby had poop up his back and all over him, it was awful but funny at the same time. I had to wash his jumparoo and mop the floor.
2. Doggie gets a SHAM-“POO”
Way back when my son was a newborn (almost 2 years ago) I was home alone for the first time – My husband had been on “vacation” for a week and a half and had gone back to work. I thought I was doing pretty good for dealing with “issues in my girly bits” and having a newborn son and two large dogs….I nursed the baby, snuggled with him, and felt the bum rumbles of baby poo. So I got up to change him, sure enough he exploded through his diaper and onesie. I get him all cleaned off, and He pees – it arcs in the air and “SPLASH!” right in his eye! I wipe him off, clean him up again, and just as I set his fresh little bum on the new diaper (before I close it up around him) he POOPS with the force of a super-soaker water gun – Projectile POO! I was able to jump out of the way and it got my pant leg just a little bit, but it got the rug and the DOG a lot! I Cleaned up the baby, put him in the bassinet, changed my pants, and bathed the dog. She looked humiliated, but I really couldn’t stop laughing! This was the first time she got pooped on, but definitely not the last!
3. Butt Bubbles
It was the day we brought my daughter home from the hospital. She needed a diaper change and since I was understandably exhausted my husband offered to change her so that I could rest and visit with my parents who’d come to see the baby. All of a sudden from her bedroom we hear, “Dude! Dude! Dude! Awwww duuuuuude!” (remember that Bud Light commercial from a couple of years back? Yeah, it was kinda like that). I go rushing back to see what’s going on. Turns out that sweet baby girl of mine started to pee when he took the diaper off. And if that wasn’t enough, she was also a bit gassy so that as the pee ran down her little bum she was blowing bubbles in it. We still laugh about it 2 1/2 yrs later!
4. Cloth is like a box of chocolates
My funniest, first and worst diaper change with cloth diapers was when I actually was trying on cloth for the first time with my son. I just want to see how things fit. We got the econobum 3 pre-fold trial package. I know I am suppose to wash it a few times before having my son in them, but being that my son has never had cloth and I’ve been dying to get my hands on some since I had my first born I was way too excited so I just fit it on him. Well he ended up peeing in there. Which of course he had to. I put the diaper on the wrong way and had to YOUTUBE it after everyone on ECOBUNS told me how to place it. So when I finally got it right put another one on and the cover on he POOPED! Its wasnt just a small poop either. It was a HUGE ONE! As I lay him down on the carpet wondering what I was going to do he looked at me, smile and SIGH. Thankfully my son is still breast feeding so we got the poo off clean. =) When I went to grab to grab some disposable, my son turned around and grabbed the last pre fold, mind you he’s all nakey at this pint, he ended up crawling up to the pre-fold sitting on it and peeing on it. Looks like my son is wanting to be on clothPost Views: 134
