Recording live from the 2016 Indiana NENA/APCO Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana it’s episode 104 of Within the Trenches, sponsored by Indiana NENA and INdigital – A leader in Next-Gen Core Services. In this episode, show regular, Rob “Big Mac” McMullen joined me to talk about anything and everything we could think of. I can’t even begin to mention what all we talked about but shout outs go to Leah of Grand Traverse, Smart911, the graphic design talents of Rizzo and the 911 Wellness Foundation.

As 911 dispatchers we deal with all kinds of situations. We speak to many different people and the calls are never the same. The majority of the calls we take on 911 are actually non-emergency. You wouldn’t think that when picking up a 911 call the conversation would be about loud noise from the neighbors or a horse in someones yard but it happens. When a 911 call comes in and it is a true emergency it can go to hell and fast. Being on our end of the phone we do anything and everything we can to keep our callers and emergency personnel safe. Whether we’re keeping a feuding couple separated or giving GPS coordinates to help find those in need of help, we do our best. I want to give props to those who worked in dispatch this past weekend and those who worked during the storms a couple weekends ago. I am proud to work with all of you. The video below is a taste of what we do. What have you done today?
PS. I show up in this video but I was not involved in the call featured in the video so the props go to my co-workers not me, although I believe I owe doughnuts for being on TV.Post Views: 532

Good evening everyone! This post is sort of a part 2 to my last post entitled, “Help us reach our goal.” In that post I was asking for everyone’s help to raise some extra money for the podcast. This is sort of the same but the difference is that I have launched a new campaign through a crowdfunding site called Teespring. It’s pretty much the same as Kickstarter but they work with people trying to sell t-shirts and such.
The t-shirt featured in this campaign takes a page out of the G.I.JOE book and since I’m an 80’s kid, it takes me back, but it also adds a mixture of 9-1-1 dispatch. It runs for $17 and the goal is to sell 150 t-shirts. The money will go directly to fund the Within the Trenches podcast and the new ventures we are exploring. Two big ideas are to do a mixed panel episode where police, fire and ems would be present to give a balanced outlook at what everyone does in emergency services. The second idea is to add some nice cams to do video episodes while in-house. The audio podcasts would still be there but the video would be something extra for our audience.
I will provide the link below so that you can check out the t-shirt and the campaign ends April 7 2013 at midnight. Our goal is to sell 150 t-shirts but just like Kickstarter, it’s an all or nothing venture. If we don’t make the goal, the shirts will not be made and no one gets charged a dime. It all works out pretty well but we want to make that goal or even surpass it before the deadline. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me by clicking the contact button on the left. Thanks and share the link with those you know. Cheers!
