Kern County “911” Dispatcher Recognition Program

25 Jan

Dear friends:

I would like to ask for your very important consideration.  On April 13th, Limousine Scene will once again co-sponsor the Kern County “911” Dispatcher Recognition Program.   The recognition dinner program will be held at Crystal Palace and recognizes the people who answer our calls to 911 in the worst time of need.  This includes police, fire and sheriff agencies as well as the local CHP dispatchers.

I am pleading for your help.  We cannot do this without community support and the dispatchers who work behind the scenes deserve to be recognized.  911 dispatchers are the first person you talk in an emergency.  They provide lifesaving instructions before help arrives.  They answer the call of a police officer shouting into his radio, “Officer Needs Assistance” and thousands of medical emergencies each year.

They’re there on holidays, nights and weekends.  They deliver babies and save lives through medical instructions given by phone.  They are unsung heroes worthy of community recognition but there are no public funds for this.

I am asking you to help us through your generous donations of monetary donations, goods or gift certificates to be used as awards.  Please adopt a table of dispatchers for $250.  Even $25 will help.  Any and all contributions are appreciated and gladly accepted.  Checks should be made payable to KCDRP and mailed to us at 317 Ming Avenue, Bakersfield 93307.

All contributions will be recognized in a keepsake program, table signs and digital logos provided by you to be shown on the big screen of Crystal Palace for your support of our local heroes.

Dispatchers ride a roller coaster of emotions dealing with human tragedy on a daily basis.  Please help us reward their effort and service to our community.  Please don’t put this off.  Take a moment right now if you can and participate with us today.

Thank you,

Jim A. Luff,

Fundraising Chair



Many Thanks to All!

23 Nov

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are most thankful for our clients and the thousands of passengers we have the opportunity of serving each year.  Limousine Scene will turn 21 years old in April of 2012.  During those years, we have survived two major economic crisis situations.  We believe that we survived because of a very loyal customer base.

We believe that a loyal customer base was built over the years by providing outstanding customer service and exceeding the expectations of those we serve.  We believe when we fail, the corrective actions taken should also exceed the expectations for remedying the problem.  If we should stumble and incur what we refer to as a “service failure”, you should be left saying, “Wow!” not that we failed, but in what we did to recover from our error.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things in our life that we are thankful for.  Customers are of course a big part of that.  Without our customers, we would not have the ability to sit down and enjoy a glorious feast under the roof of our warm houses.  Our customers provide all of our employees with jobs as well.  Speaking of employees, I am thankful for them as well.  Our employees, from chauffeurs to reservation agents, dispatchers to bookkeepers and car detailers to marketing and office support staff, we could not do it without a team of dedicated employees.  I certainly am thankful for each and every one of them.

There are also many, many people and vendor companies that help keep us going that I am thankful for.  From the route driver that delivers clean towels each week for cleaning our cars to the mechanics at the local Ford dealership that keep our cars on the road.  All play a part in our success and we are lucky to have such awesome relationships with all of our vendors.

So, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I say, thank you for being a part of my life, the life of the company and the lives of all of our employees.  We wish you the a Happy Thanksgiving and a joyous holiday season.
