Ever since Within the Trenches was funded through Kickstarter there have been several niche Facebook pages that have helped in spreading the word on the show. One of those pages is The Cool Kids of 9-1-1. The people who run this page are also involved in many different aspects of the 9-1-1 profession. One of those aspects is a mini conference or “Mini-C” and it’s that time again folks! The South Florida 9-1-1 Dispatchers “Mini-C” has returned and is now in its fourth year. This mini-conference and precursor to National Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week will take place on April 1 – 5 at the Boca Raton Police/Fire/9-1-1 Training Center 6500 Congress Avenue –Auditorium– Boca Raton FL 33487. The “Mini-C” will include classes that range from crimes in progress, active shooters and 9-1-1 risk management.
According to their official flier, the conference is “uniquely funded so that Attendee Cost is $0.00 FREE for all 9-1-1 Professionals who work in Palm Beach County! *Registration required before March 15th 2013*” Now, just because this is being held in Florida, doesn’t mean that you can’t attend. The flier goes on to say that, “Outside-the-County 9-1-1 Professionals and invited guests may register their interest now to be considered on an available-space basis. These registrations will have attendance confirmed by email on March 18th 2013 (2 week notice] So if you want to take part in this conference you need to get cracking folks!
