Can you tell me what it’s like?

I recently sent someone an #IAM911 story. The person responded saying that the story was heart wrenching but they asked a question after that, "can you tell me what it’s like to be on the receiving end of these calls?" The following was my response. Imagine your brother has been dealing with a bad break up. You go to the bar and after a few drinks he tells you he wants to kill himself. You tell him to stop talking like that. It's not the end of the world. You head home and when you arrive Read more [...]

To walk among heroes

"To walk among heroes" Guest blog post - Written by - Billy Short - Technical Trainer with RPSS It was the last class of my training assignment for a PSAP in Louisiana. The training part of my class was over, so I broke into my post class “appreciation speech.” Since becoming a technical trainer for 911 dispatchers, my eyes had been opened to things that I guess, I had always taken for granted. I shared with the class how that I, as a citizen, truly appreciated the work that dispatchers Read more [...]

The Next Call…

Guest blog written by: Daphanie Bailes – Within the Trenches Admin, In Between the Chaos columnist for IAED & Senior Telecommunicator and Communications Training Coordinator for Martin County Fire Rescue I have never done that. I was so emotionally consumed by your call, I broke character completely. I walked outside and did something that I had never needed to do before. Yours was the first call of my shift. You said you found your teenage son on the floor in his Read more [...]

Rainy Days – A Guest Blog Post

Written by - Ryan Dedmon, M.A. Outreach Director, 911 Training Institute It’s raining in Southern California.  Again.  It has rained here 3 days a week for the last month, breaking only long enough for things to dry out before the next storm front rolls in.  It has rained more in the last month than it has the last 3 years.  I suppose that’s a good thing.  California has long suffered from a drought, but rain makes everything more miserable. We Californians love our sunshine Read more [...]

An LEO Wives Story – Guest Blog Post By Aly Tuttle

A Guest Blog Post By: Aly Tuttle This morning I woke up as my husband was getting ready to head into work. Today is his normal day off, yet he is going in to work some overtime and to lead the range training for the other officers. I saw his range uniform laying there. He got dressed, I gave him a kiss, told him his butt looked good in those pants and off he went. I proceeded to start laundry, and I see his uniform needs washed. I broke down. Why? I can’t tell you exactly why it was that Read more [...]

The Creative Corner – “I may” by Lindsay Tuhacek

Good evening folks! It’s been some time since I’ve posted to The Creative Corner but earlier today I saw a link that led me to some excellent poetry. I was so moved by it that I felt it needed to be featured. The poetry comes from Lindsay Tuhacek, a graduate of Western Michigan University with a degree in Exercise Science and an emphasis in cardiac rehabilitation. She is a dedicated health and fitness advocator, writer, and mother of four. This talented woman does it all and from what I’ve Read more [...]

The Creative Corner – A Zombie Story

A while back I had come up with an idea where people could be involved in a zombie apocalypse. Their involvement would be shown by the messages they left behind for the living. It started out well and was hot for a bit but the big picture was lost when I became too busy for my own creation. It sucked because there were some good entries but I couldn't keep up with it. It was on an entirely separate blog and after a while I just lost sight of it. So now I'm bringing it back. I'm thinking of taking Read more [...]

It’s time to expand with RMII Visions

  Hello all, I have decided to delete my "Random Jabs" page and add "RMII Visions" (RM2V) in its place. I'm sure you have seen the headline above my Twitter feed that states, "Jabber Log is a branch of RMII Visions" but I don't believe I have ever explained what it is. So without further ado, RMII Visions is the parent company (of sorts) name that Jabber Log falls under. I use the RM2V name when I design. I have tried to keep them some what separate but since I have had a lot of people view Read more [...]
