Our profession is constantly changing and offers the reward of helping others in need. This career offers an opportunity to provide invaluable service to the community while working in a position that provides good benefits and a strong sense of self worth.
Emergency telecommunicators and communications officers are often called upon to make life and death decisions, and must do so quickly and effectively. Members of our team must be able to work independently with little direction from floor supervisors, listen and accurately record information provided by citizens, police, fire, and medical personnel, and perform multiple tasks at the same time. Team members answer and process 9-1-1 calls and must be able to deal effectively with people who are hysterical, frightened, abusive, non-English speaking, and/or intoxicated.
Our professionals dispatch police, fire, and emergency medical field units and must be able to communicate effectively and clearly with the field units over the radio, while maintaining accurate computer updates. Work is often performed under stressful demands for speed and accuracy. The ability to work any shift, on any day, and to work overtime are essential functions of the job.
