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.
