    Tammy Shupp, one of our agencies’ most seasoned and dedicated dispatchers, tragically lost her home to a fire while at work at Routt County Communications Center.  While Tammy, her fiancé and three beloved dachshunds are safe, her home is a total loss.  Tammy has dedicated most of her working career to providing superior service and support as a 911 dispatcher to law enforcement, fire / EMS services and the citizens of the community in which she works.  We hope to be able to give back to her in her time of need.  We ask for your thoughts and prayers for Tammy during this time.   She will be doing her best to rebuild her life out of her own pocket.  Any support you are able to give Tammy is greatly appreciated.   A GoFundMe account has been set up at  or mail directly to Tammy Shupp at: PO Box 775473, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.   Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.   Karie Taylor, Communications Specialist III, Routt County Communications

    • Lloyd Fayling has been a mainstay in Michigan with APCO and NENA. He was a big, imposing figure with a booming voice. To be honest, the first time I met him, I feared him. I was speaking at one of their conferences and he invited me to a party boat they had chartered. He ended up being a big teddy bear that loved life, people and the profession. Apparently, Lloyd was working in the yard and was stung by either bees or wasps. His wife tried to administer an epi-pen but it was too late. Lloyd was the Director of Genesee County.  Their address is G-4481 Corunna Road, Flint, Michigan 48532.  Link for the death notice.  
    • Don Aker passed away yesterday during surgery. Don has been courageously fighting cancer for over a year. Many of you know him from classes in Maryland or seeing him at NAVIGATOR. Some of you might remember the fun and loud table sitting next to us at a Mexican DDD in Salt Lake City a few years back. Don loved funky food finds like me and if you got the honor of sitting near him, it as dinner and a comedy show. There wasn’t much that he couldn’t make fun. Don and his team is one of the reasons that PG County is well trained and respected. This year I got to sit across the table from Don at a hole in the wall Crab joint. He offered to drive me to my hotel and on the way home, I got the A+ Annapolis tour. What a quality guy. PLEASE send a card to:  Prince George County 911, attn. Angela in training – 17321 Melford Blvd, Bowie, MD 20715.  Link for the announcement
