We've all been in a vehicle when a police car goes speeding by with lights flashing and sirens blaring. If you're like most of us, you've probably wondered where they were going. But have you ever wondered who sent them zipping down that street in the first place? How did they know they were needed? A communications dispatcher directed them. Dispatchers take calls for service then send law enforcement to the scene. They are often the first point of contact for people needing help and dispatchers have to remain calm no matter the situation. They have to make sense of what the caller is dealing with so they can dispatch the correct emergency services. Dispatchers must be able to multitask and deal effectively with different personality types. They must remain in control of their own emotions so they can help victims remain calm.
Is a career as a communications dispatcher right for you?
Anyone looking to become a dispatcher should have a strong desire to help others, a strong ability to multitask, and a thick skin to be able to remain calm and deal with people who are in their greatest moments of need and distress. A dispatcher is dedicated and has a strong desire to provide excellent customer service and enhance our community safety.
