Within the Trenches


wttPodcastCoverWelcome back to another great episode of Within the Trenches, a podcast based on the experience of being a 9-1-1 dispatcher. In this episode I go solo and update everyone on major happenings with the podcast, the #IAM911 movement, Project #IAM911 and the recent announcement on my collaboration with the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch (IAED.) I also share an audio #IAM911 story from Donita, a 9-1-1 professional, as well as a video I put together as a glimpse into the stories that make up the movement.
