If you're not already, you should consider using background music. Pick something without a lot of vocals (jazz and lounge and are always good, some movie soundtracks). Leave it playing continuously so if there's an emergency you can just just quickly fade it up. It can also help you with your speaking: pauses can sound much more deliberate when music's playing in the background, saves you from having to say "uh" and "booya". And, transitions from the music to just voice are always more abrupt sounding than when the background music fades up out of the previous track and then then your voice comes out over the top of it - it gives everything some flow.
