    Kind of EMS dispatcher. Work for a local medical helicopter service part-time. Used to do fire/ems/police part-time when we had our own dispatch years ago.


    My avatar is actually the interior of our 1st out bird when my daughter went for a ride, it's a Sikorsky S-76B.

    Yep. Well part-time anyway. I started out in LEO dispatch and then moved to patrol. I also took a part-time job with the county dispatch center doing fire and EMS. I am kind of a jack of all trades when it comes to emergency services. I am a certified Police Officer, EMT-I, NAEMD, and FFII. Here is a pic of our center. We just got a remodel finished and a new cad system installed.

    There are 2 other consoles that you cannot see in this photo. Our new center was opened in 2004.

    We dispatch for 3 LE agencies and 5 fire departments. I am a reserve deputy for our local SO.

    I am a police/fire/ems dispatcher. We run a regional center here. All the 911 for the county comes to us, we dispatch for 9 police depts, 5 ems depts, and 12 fire departments.
    We just got a $1.5million upgrade to our center. No pics right now but will get you some.
