Ep 167 features Mary, Deputy Director with MACECOM out of Washington state. This episode is sponsored by the 911 Training Institute and supported by INdigital, a leader in Next-Gen Core Services. In this episode Mary talks about what is new at her dispatch center and informs our listeners of the upcoming Western Regional Conference in Tacoma, Washington. We also tackle the debate of “what is your emergency?” versus “where is your emergency?” It’s a debate that has been out there for some time but has been recently brought to the frontline with the launch of FOX’s new show, “9-1-1.” It’s an episode you don’t want to miss and for more information on the Western Regional Conference follow the links below.
