UNCLE!!!! Never again will I say that my plans are to get out the show notes by the end of the day in which my show airs – It simply NEVER happens…. From now on, we’ll shoot for getting out sometime the following day.
We started out talking about 1Union801, which started out as a single tweet and as they say, things just took off from there.
If memory serves me correctly 1Union 801 recently celeberated it’s one year anniversary…. Yep here it is.
1 Union 801: The Webcast is a member of the Pro-Med Network and sponsored by EMS Manager (Aladtec on Twitter & Facebook. We can’t forget John’s wonderful call-screener/co-host Dee Elmore. Without her help well let’s just say that things would be a lot harder on John).
Next on the agenda was John’s book, “The Cavalry is Coming”. The original (softbound – just one left) was published in June 2006 and the Kindle version was published June 2013). There is also a continuation of the book called “Gains & Losses” which basically begins where The first book leaves off (with the very next shift). As of yet, “Gains & Losses” is NOT available on Kindle, but who knows…. Maybe we can talk John into publishing it their as well 😉
Make sure to follow 1 Union 801 the Webcast: On the World Wide Web at Twitter, Facebook, G+, and (of course) on Blog Talk Radio every other Saturday from 11:30 – 12:30 EST. Their next show is scheduled for 11:30 EST on October 12. You can, also, find John Broyles on Twitter, Facebook, and G+ .
I would amiss if I didn’t at least mention that many Fire Stations were flying their flags….. I want to say half-mast (but that’s on the water) in honor of Firefighter LODD.
Also, don’t forget that this National Fire Prevention Week (Oct 06 -12). Many Fire Departments are having activities related to such – check with your local department for what’s going on in your area. The NFPA and Sparky The Fire Dog has several useful tips on their websites (just click on the names in this blog to go to their fire prevention week portion of their websites). Also check out the “Sparky the Fire Dog” e-book and app/storybook.
Last, but not least, this weeks safety message: G is for Gear
No show scheduled for next week as I will be unavailable (and thinking of going to every other week for now).
