Have you ever been in a situation that put you at the center of something you did not do? In this episode both Ed and I share stories from our childhood that involved stealing. We were both victims in each case but those involved saw it another way. Both were fun to tell and we put it to the man! Get ready to laugh until your stomach hurts.

Imagine waking up on Saturday. The sky is blue and the sun is shining bright. You lean over to wake your husband. He doesn’t move. You turn him over and notice his lips are blue…you check him…no pulse. Your heart breaks…he’s gone. Now imagine you are 9-1-1, listening to the screams and wails of a wife who has lost her best friend and husband. She requests CPR instructions but you know it’s too late. This is what it’s like, Within the Trenches.
In this episode we will visit the #IAM911 movement, a movement I started to fight the reclassification of dispatchers from clerical to protective and bring awareness to the types of calls that 9-1-1 dispatchers answer on a daily basis.
Now…you heard the warning at the beginning but I must warn you again and add that if you suffer from PTSD or have suicidal tendencies you are listening at your own risk. The stories you are about to hear are all true and come from the dispatchers who lived them.
While some stories have a good outcome, the majority are horrifying. This is our reality. Your worst day is our every day.
So let’s start with a bang.
I want you to imagine each story. Become the dispatcher who has taken each call and imagine listening…Post Views: 178

There comes a time when one realizes the power of music. Our lives revolve around it. Music can tug at our emotional strings, influence how we feel, and pinpoint a specific memory from our past. I for one can recall a memory with a song and explain in detail what was going on just by hearing that one song. It’s interesting how we can do this. We relate our memories and experiences in life with music. To me it’s rather therapeutic.
Life continues to change. Change can include new musical types that are added to our evolving musical taste. Recently I have added more and more Country music to my ever-evolving musical palette. I have begun to relate moments in my life to the likes of Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins, and Maddie Larkin. The third artist is an up and coming Country singer/song writer that I had the privilege to listen to. She recently released her debut album, “Letters From My Cold Heart” and I’m impressed. From the sound of Maddie’s voice, to her lyrics, and the entire band behind her, I was impressed.
What struck a chord with me the most was how much I was able to relate to her. My love for writing comes from my life experiences and those around me. For Maddie Larkin though, her gift for writing was first revealed in a life-changing event. In her own words,
“My gift of writing was revealed at age twelve after a devastating back injury ended my hopes of being an elite gymnast. In order to express the pain I was experiencing and the frustration of not being heard, I began pouring myself into writing lyrics.”
It’s interesting how it takes a life altering experience like this to find out what we are made of and what our calling is. I believe we can all relate with Maddie as we think back to a time where instead of giving up, we fought back and won. Driven to succeed, Maddie taught herself to play the piano, guitar, and ukulele. Her passion for music and lyrics is easily heard throughout her music. From the anthem of “Give It Up” to the ballad of “Summer Star”, “Letters From My Cold Heart” is a musical success that anyone can relate to and reflect. The combination of life and music is where we can compare to Maddie Larkin. Where we have many gifts in life, Maddie’s gift is music.
“I discovered what I am called to do. Music is me.”

On June 14 -19 2014 the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) will be in Nashville Tennessee for the annual National NENA conference. This is a fun filled week for 9-1-1 professionals to learn and network through educational courses.
Our Industry Partners allow us to put on a great conference. They also provide the latest and greatest of their products to be displayed. I support how important it is for dispatchers to partake in this conference and the amount of knowledge one can take back is truly invaluable.
The Within the Trenches podcast is back along side Mark Fletcher of the Avaya Podcast Network (APN) in the podcast zone! There was an excellent turnout for the podcast zone last year and Within the Trenches helped tell dispatch stories from all over the United States. We also acquired sponsors for the week with advertising on the show, blog, social media outlets and more as a return to those sponsors.
There are three different sponsorship packages that include advertising for each Industry Partner sponsor during the week as well as the life of the show. What this means is once the episode is recorded and released to the public your ad is out there until it is taken down. And as of right now the show is not ending any time soon, and 9-1-1 professionals are joining “Within the Trenches” daily to listen in.
Sponsorships are set up in three tiers.
- Tier 1 for $100 – Your logo will be added to a sign and displayed on the broadcast table during the week at the conference.
- Tier 2 for $200 – Your logo will be added to a sign and on a special page of thejabberlog.com.
- Tier 3 for $300 – (Tier 1 & 2 included) PLUS your business will also be mentioned in an episode of the show
All sponsorship money goes directly to the show for t-shirt giveaways, mug giveaways and any equipment or web hosting needed for the show.
If you would like to be a sponsor please email me for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of “WTT Sponsorship.” I will call you to finalize everything.
Thank you for the support!Post Views: 118
