As a salute to the first responders and military that keep this nation safe, a community lovingly referred to as “Sheep Dogs”, we will be highlighting a number of organizations that support these local heroes. Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that serves the needs of people serving in the military, law enforcement, fire and EMS services. Inspired by a desire to help those in need, SDIA was founded by SgtMaj Lance Nutt, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. All members of SDIA are current or former military and public safety personnel with an innate desire to serve and protect. Whether it’s helping local service professionals in a time of need or traveling to assist a community in the wake of a natural disaster, SDIA members believe that service does not stop when a shift or tour of duty ends. Listen in to Lances fascinating story and find out what you can support this great organization, and subsequently, our nations heroes.

Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101 will focus on risk mitigation and business preparedness steps in a practical and realistic way, for any sized organization in any industry. This show will drive risk and preparedness topics from discussion to action, and really educate about why businesses must prepare, and then provide the knowledge to get it done. The topics we cover are related to current “hot topics,” such as workplace violence, technology resilience, emergency communications, the psychology of disaster, or cyber-attacks. At other times when there are no “hot topics”, issues covered will range from threat assessment, to human resource issues related to emergency management, to best practices in risk mitigation.
By trade, Pamela Hill is a business professional with over twenty five years of experience in business continuity planning, disaster and emergency preparedness for a wide variety of industries.
After a successful run as a VoiceAmerica Host on Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101, covering emergency preparedness in businesses, she decided to switch gears to talk about her true passion, dogs and their uniquely close relationship with humans.
Pam’s love affair with all things canine started when she was young, where she traveled throughout the west coast competing in dog shows with her client’s dogs, and also in obedience events with her own dogs. That was a long time ago, but the love of dogs was like a siren song, calling her back.
Now, Pam is focusing the show on education and creating awareness of all the ways dogs and human enrich each other’s lives.
