Hello everyone, I am back this week with a quick bonus episode of Within the Trenches. In this episode I gave condolences on behalf of Whitney and the show for those who were involved in the Boston Marathon Bombing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and we salute emergency services and especially the 9-1-1 dispatchers. This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week and although we didn’t do a full episode we still wanted to honor one of our own. Deb Pallett has been recently recognized for her 30 years of service with Allegan County Central Dispatch. She has done great work and continues to do so. I have had the pleasure to work with Deb and it has always been a good time. It has also been interesting and I have learned a lot from her. This episode includes an interview I did with Deb and our Assistant Director Tammy for a class assignment where Deb tells her story of survival from breast cancer. This bonus episode is a must listen and there is also some info for those who want to be guests on an episode of Within the Trenches and conferences that are coming up. As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org.
