Hello, I am Cindy Bridges. I have been in the 9-1-1 industry for 24 years from 9-1-1 dispatch in Kentucky to the professional arena that I am in today here in Texas. I have held the office of President with TX NENA and the Public Educators of Texas (PET) group. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Austin Peay State University and a master’s degree in Business Management and Leadership from Tarleton State University. Also, I have held the Emergency Number Professional (ENP) certification since 2006. For the last four years, I have been on the Texas Public Safety Conference planning committee, with the last two being in the status of conference planning chair and co-chair. I was also involved in the combining of the Spring conference with both Texas chapter groups to become what is now called Texas Public Safety Conference. To say that I have a passion for 9-1-1 is keeping it understated. I believe in the people that make 9-1-1 work and in the industry itself from vendors, office staff and telecommunicators alike and across the board. I hold my APCO membership with high regard and have attended many APCO national conferences where I have met and come to know many members across the country. I am a planner to the core and believe in transparency. Members should know that their executive board is not only representing them in a professional manner but listening to and applying their needs. I have two children whom are grown now, Tyler and Keshlei. Keshlei is a Senior at the University of North Texas (UNT). Tyler lives in Corpus Christi area and is a security guard at one of the refineries there. Both have grown up in the 9-1-1 industry and thankfully adopted the many of the work and personal ethics I hold dear. When I am off and out with my husband, Mike and friends, you can find me listening to local live music bands in the Austin area, riding on our motorcycle, camping in our RV or visiting some beach, maybe even the RV on the beach somewhere in Texas listening to music. Together, I believe we can continue the adventures between Texas APCO and NENA and make the future even more bright!
