About the author:

David Vasser has been employed in communications since 1968, when at the age of 14 he began a 36 year career in commercial broadcasting. He began his second career as one of the initial hires for the 1993 start up of the Stanly County 9-1-1  Emergency Communications Center in Albemarle, North Carolina. There he currently functions as 9-1-1 Telecommunicator, as Training Officer and as NCIC Terminal Agency Coordinator overseeing that agency's access to the national law enforcement computer network. During his tenure he has personally handled communications procedures for over 100,000 public safety incidents which makes him one of the most, if not the most experienced Telecommunicator at this state of the art center which dispatches all public safety agencies in the county.

The Stanly 911 Center was updated and expanded in 1999, and underwent yet another total reconstruction completed in May of 2003.  Another new center is on the drawing board to be built in a new County Emergency Services Center  in east Albemarle in the same facility where a new EMS base and the Emergency Management Agency will also be housed.  Stanly County's 911 center has always been recognized as among the most up to date in the region with the very latest and best in technology.  For example, Stanly County was getting latitude and longitude of the location of cell phone calls to 9-1-1, long before numerous other large cities weren't.  You can view a Channel 14 news story about the 2003 rebuild, featuring the author by clicking HERE.

While designing the current training system for Stanly County 9-1-1 and taking an active part in actually training the new hires there, his teaching skills have also utilized by both Stanly Community College of Albemarle and Montgomery Community College of Troy where he has been employed as a part time instructor in Emergency Response. As a Red Cross Disaster Services Instructor Dave also trains other Red Cross volunteers to manage disaster situations for that agency and instructs all manner of health and safety courses.

Active in community volunteer programs, he is Past-Chairman of the Stanly County Chapter of The American Red Cross and is currently serving as Disaster Services Committee Chairman. He has been a volunteer with Badin & Eastside Fire Departments plus has served on Eastside Fire Departments's board of directors. Additional activities include past membership on the Stanly County Firefighter Association Public Relations Committee and committee work for the Centralina Council of Governments 9-1-1 Telecommunicator Continuing Education Program.

He has received special training in Mass Casualty Incident Management with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001 he volunteered for highly specialized training in Weapons of Mass Destruction Incident Management with the North Carolina Emergency Management Agency making him one of a select few people from our county qualified in that field.  He is also trained in hostage/terrorist negotiator operations and a myriad of other specialties. 

Previously he has worked on United Way fund campaigns, served on the Stanly County Emergency Medical Dispatch Audit and Review Committee and has been the Western North Carolina District Vice-Chairman for the American National Red Cross.

In September of 2004 "The Brother Dave Show" which was heard every Saturday afternoon from 2:00 until 7:00 on Charlotte's Magic 96.1 FM wrapped up during year number thirteen and Dave's retired from commercial radio to focus on family, 9-1-1 and community service. 

When asked why he wrote this job information down he says, "So I could stop explaining to people about how to get a job at 9-1-1.  Now I just give them the website address.  It saves me at least an hour a week!  Also, I can update the web documents anytime new information becomes available.  I want people to have the very latest information and the Internet is the ideal way to do that."

The manual you are about to read was previously sold by direct mail through classified ads in several publications beginning in 1997.  It has undergone continuous revision ever since.

Remarkably, Dave found time to share the information in his 9-1-1 book, although I don't know when he could have had time to do it.  I've known him since he moved to North Carolina in 1980, and I believe it is safe to say he is here to stay because he is too busy to leave!  David, his 1987 bride Nancy and their family make their home along one of the storied fairways of the Stanly County Country Club located in the heart of North America's oldest mountain range, the Uwharrie Mountains where the bald eagles still fly free.
