Within the Trenches is based off my experience as a 9-1-1 dispatcher. I worked in dispatch for almost 13 years and it was the most interesting job I ever had. I started this segment to let people know what it’s like to be in this profession. The stories within this category involve all types of calls. The show is meant to be informative, humorous, serious and all around eye opening to the world of 9-1-1 dispatch. The idea for this started a long time ago and the video that started it all can be seen here.
My co-host Whitney and I have interviewed dispatchers from all over the United States including other areas such as Australia, Canada and Ireland. We are always looking for dispatchers as well as 9-1-1 related companies to be guests on the show. We want to tell your story! If you are a dispatch center running a fundraiser and want to get the word out then we want to help. If you have a dispatcher who was chosen as dispatcher of the year then we want to interview them and share their story.
The show can be heard on iTunes, Stitcher Radio and Soundcloud. The player above contains each episode for your convenience. I hope you enjoy this segment of The Jabber Log and if you have any questions or want to appear on the show, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
