Within the Trenches is back with episode 57! This is just one of several episodes recorded last week during the Indiana NENA state conference. In this episode I sat down to talk with Heather and Kelly, dispatchers out of LaGrange County in Indiana and they received one of this years Team Work Awards. We look at how they got started in 9-1-1 and how they played a major part in a situation where a woman was taken hostage in Michigan and ended up in Indiana. The suspect was a prisoner who had escaped from custody out of Ionia County.
This is a must listen so check it out and share! As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hello folks! I hope you are all having a great day so far. I have been doing excellent myself and what makes it even better is the warm weather. Well…as of right now it’s raining but the weather has been great. I have had the chance to grill a few times and if you know me, you know that I love to grill! With that said, I have decided to share a quick recipe with you. Now before I share it I have to say that the video that comes with this is somewhat choppy. I’m not sure why it’s this way but if you remember Max Headroom from either HBO or Cinemax then you’ll get the picture.
The video was hidden within my YouTube library. It’s a demo speech presentation that I had to record for my Oral Communications class about 4 or 5 years ago. I sound like a fool and overall it’s informative but funny so at least I’ll be able to make you laugh. I hope you enjoy the Infused Beer Brats as much as I do and happy grilling. Cheers!
Infused Beer Brats –
2 bottles of your favorite beer (I use Honey Brown)
Package of Brats (I use Johnsonville)
Half Onion (sliced)
Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan, bring to boil, and then cover and simmer for 20mins at low heat. After the 20mins, add brats to an already heated grill and cook to your liking. Enjoy!Post Views: 150

Good morning everyone! Ever since Within the Trenches hit its goal the show has become quite popular. With such an outpour of support it not only makes me happy but it proves how important this show is. I have been working on spreading the word on the show as well as submitting feeds in order for people to have the ability to download certain apps and stream the show over their mobile devices. As of right now there are three separate feeds. I stated this in a previous post but I wanted to state it again so that it is clear. The feeds are separated as separate categories with one being Within the Trenches, The AudioVillains (NSFW), and a feed to rule them all, The JCast. The last one holds all the shows in one. I did this because not everyone wants to hear every show and all three links can be found on the right side of the site.
With that said I’m happy to announce that Within the Trenches is not only on iTunes for subscription but on Stitcher Radio. For those who have not heard about Stitcher, it’s a free mobile app available for iPhone, Android and other mobile devices. It’s an on-demand podcast, news and public radio app. Ever since I started using Stitcher I have discovered many great shows and I highly recommend it. I will provide a video on Stitcher and a link to Within the Trenches for your listening pleasure. Thank you again for listening and this Wednesday January 16th episode 3 will be recorded. If you have any questions please contact me any time at the JCast’s official email email@example.com. If you are a fan of the show or you know someone who is, make sure to ‘Like’ Jabber Log on Facebook for up to date information on new episodes.Post Views: 113

Good evening folks and welcome back to another installment of Within the Trenches. One thing I have always wanted to do with this show is focus on dispatch stories, which I have done but I also want to start focusing on topic driven episodes. So far on the show we have taken on PTSD in dispatch, dispatch training standards and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM).
Continuing with the focus on topic driven episodes, I got the chance to chat with Matt, Senior Director of Product Management for Smart911 by Rave Mobile Safety. In this episode we touch on what Smart911 does, how they started and how the program works. According to their website, “Smart911 is a free service that allows citizens across the U.S. to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 to have in the event of an emergency.”
Make sure to listen and share with your friends and family. Also make sure to check out The Thin Gold Line on Facebook for 9-1-1 news, memes and discussion. Another source for 9-1-1 news, memes and discussion is Diary of a Mad Dispatcher. KMK, the pages creator recently wrote and published a book called, Endure (The Greyson-Slade Series). You can find it on Amazon so check it out!
