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!

Within the Trenches is back with episode 50! The show has come a long way since the Kickstarter campaign. Whitney and I have spoken to dispatchers, leaders and educators within the dispatch community. The show has also been present for different conferences and the first one was last year at the Mini-C conference in Boca Raton Florida.
Tom with the Cool Kids of 9-1-1 invited the show to be there on one of the days to do interviews. The hospitality was excellent, the people were awesome and inspiring and I can’t thank Tom enough for the invite and exposure. This year the Mini-C will be on April 7th – 11th from 0800 – 1700 and one of the dispatchers attending this year is our special guest on today’s episode.
In this episode I spoke with Dana from Sumter County Sheriff’s Department. She shared her dispatch experience with me as well as her experience at last years Mini-C. This year she will be attending all week and will be posting on her social media outlets as the conference goes on so make sure to check her out at the links below. Dana also had a spotlight feature with Public Safety Communications and you can find the link below as well. This is a must listen episode so make sure to listen, share and check her out!
