According to Jason Long, Law Enforcement Training Instructor- Telecommunications at the Kentucky State Po- lice Academy, working in today's emergency services communica- tions center requires a number of qualifies and haracteristics that are absolutely imperative including: " the ability to handle very stressful, challeng- ing conditions. flexible work sched- ules empathy in dealing with others the ability to learn and adapt, especially in areas of technology His advice to those who may be consider- ing the field as a career? "You need to think hard about whether you are willing to make the sac- ririces you have to make. You have to spend time away from your family. You hfive to work week- ends and holidays. With all the continuing train- ing required, there is a big investment of time and you need to be sure you can make the com- mitment." "I'o be honest, it's not: a job for everyone," he says. "It is stressful and challeng!ng and some people simple can't deal with the types of calls and the types of deadly incidents that we have to handle." By Cecil Lawson KyNewsGroup cecil@kynewsgroup.com As the short, gloomy days of fall and winter move inevitably upon us, maybe it is time to start thinking about a trip to a warmer place, and Bath County's own Lynn Reed can help ou with just that. Lynn Reed is owner of Travel Escapes, a travel agency that can send you on your way to your dream brings a wealth of 7 experience, training, and travel industry connections to her business, getting her start with Carrington Travel in Mt. Sterling back in 1993. "After I learned a lot, I thought, this is some- thing I absolutely love," Reed said. "Something in my gut just told me it was my calling." Travel Escapes has a long list of return and even lifetime clients, who began their trip planning with Reed years ago and whose children are now planning their trips with her help. Reed can help you plan your trips to any destina- tion, whether a Caribbean cruise, or a Disney vaca- tion, or Hawaii, or Europe. Planning a trip can be a pretty daunting task on your own. Reed says that many people try to do this by themselves and can side tracked. "Between work, school, the ballpark, dance recitals, it's tough for families to find pre- cious time, let alone, man- age it all," she said. "You have a mechanic work on your car, and a hair stylist to do your hair, so why not have a travel agent plan your trip?" Reed said that she has seen a lot of changes in the travel industry in the past 21 years, including the growing popularity of all-inclusive trips as well as the stellar growth of the Walt Disney travel experi- ence. She works from her home, and she works on commission, so clients are not charged for her ser- vices. "I can meet or beat internet prices," Reed said. In addition to Travel Escapes, Reed has also organized and hosted The Ultimate Girl Party for the past two years, and she is hoping for an even big- ger third year. This year's event is scheduled for Sat- urday, Nov. 15, from 10 - 3 p.m. at the Bath County Ag Center, just east of Owings- ville on U. S. 60. This very successful event draws vendors and business owners from all over the region, and it was the brainchild of one sleep- less night. He had thought about hosting an open house event and inviting her regular and potential clients. Once she began to put together a list of poten- tial vendors for the event. 'q'his would all be stuff a girl would love," she said. Last year's event drew over 250 people, and with more vendors this year, she hopes to drawn many more to the event. This year's Ulfinaat Girl Party 3 will feature a raffle for two University of Ken- tucky items, and the funds will go toward a very spe- cial local cause. Admis- sion to the event is free, but visitors are encour- aged to bring an uwrapped toy for a toy drive for the Shriner's Hospital. I feel like I do a good job for my clients," Reed said. "I want lifetime cli- ents. That's what I strive for. I'm only as good as my next trip." For all of your travel needs, you can contact Reed at 606-674-9164 or by email at travelgirl.2009@ yahoo.com.
