Good afternoon folks! I hope everyone is having a great day. This week on Within the Trenches I sat down with Trista of Allegan County Central Dispatch to tell her story. We talked about how she got into the profession of emergency services as well as how callers can screw up her name. We touched on the many questions we ask and how the night shift of 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. can bring horror over the radio. “SHOTS FIRED” is something we never want to hear yelled over the radio but it comes with the job. We describe two incidents that occurred and how we felt during those calls. This is a must listen and make sure to comment.

As always if you have any questions or if you would like to be on the show, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
I get everything from Diane to Cindy.... I don't know where the Cindy comes from! But yes, a lot of times, in this world of cell phones and fiber optics, the sound quality isn't the best. I have asked how to spell some really simple names, just to make sure I heard it correctly.
Oh my goodness in regards to the mispronunciation of names I get that all the time from Monique, to Unie, and Jenny. Not sure where the Jenny comes from
