Men’s Club at 911 Center by Chas Phillips

On Thursday, 8/11, the Men’s Club toured the LAPD Dispatch Center in West Hills.  As stated by the tour guide, the tours are not only informative but also educational.  We learned and saw the history of the Call Center and the progression of the equipment, very interesting.  We moved to a conference room and learned how this center and the second center in Los Angeles cover the entire County of L. A.  From the conference room we were able to observe the call center in action.  A huge room with over 50 desks, each desk having 6 computer screens to help the dispatcher determine how to handle the call.  We also learned that over half the calls received by the 911 operators are not emergency calls and should have used the non-emergency phone number:  1-844-ASK-LAPD (1-877-275-5273).

Men’s Club at Edwards AFB by Chas Phillips

On Friday, 8/12, the Men’s Club took a tour of Edwards Air Force Base.  An absolutely amazing and wonderful tour.  Out Tour Guide was a retired Air Force camera man who rode in the backseat of aircraft and took pictures of test aircraft in flight during a test session.  It was easy to see he enjoyed his job and embraced the chance to depart his knowledge and experience to the group.  If you are an aircraft or flight enthusiast, this is a must tour.  Starting in the flight and aircraft museum, we saw an example of every aircraft tested at Edwards…amazing.  With pictures and examples of some the more famous accomplishment of the Test Pilots, the museum is a must see.  We then took a bus tour of the Administration buildings and then onto the flight line.  We saw F-16s, F22s, F-35s, KC-135s, C-17s, B-1, and a Global Hawk drone and several other less famous aircraft.  At the Tourist Center, all of the F-100 series aircraft are on display.  The base and the history are truly an experience to cherish
