Welcome back to another excellent episode of Within the Trenches. The show has reached episode 70 and I have to admit that when I first created this show I didn’t think I would reach a number this high. I have enjoyed every moment of this and I will continue to do the show until the 9-1-1 stories run out. This is also going to be the last episode in the 2014 National NENA Conference series.
In this episode I spoke with Stacy, a dispatcher with SERESA, a central dispatch for three cities within Macomb County in Michigan and a Friends of 911 Scholarship winner. The episode could not have gone any better and it was awesome speaking with Stacy.
This is a must listen so make sure to check it out and share! As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have experienced a lot in my life and being a 9-1-1 supervisor has allowed me to learn more about emergency services and those who work in the field. Today I got the chance to interview Joel Thompson, a Plainwell EMS paramedic. The audio story, which can be heard by following the link below, sheds light on what makes him tick, his educational background and what he enjoys most about his job. A big thanks goes out to Thompson, Plainwell EMS, and Allegan County Central Dispatch for assisting in this project.Post Views: 437
