El Paso Fire Department Accepting Applications for Public Safety Communicator Trainees

Beginning at midnight Thursday, March 2nd, the El Paso Fire Department will be accepting applications for Public Safety Communicator Trainees.

Public Safety Communicators process emergency and non-emergency telephone calls and dispatch, monitor and coordinate activities of emergency personnel (police, fire and medical) using a multi-channel radio system and a computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system.

“We are looking for people who value public service,” said Fire Human Resource Director Monica Puga. “Public Safety Communicators are a vital link between the citizens of El Paso and first responders. This position is more than a job; it’s about serving the community.”

Interested individuals should apply immediately as the position will close once a pre-set amount of applications are received. Selected candidates will go through a paid, six-month training period earning $14.65 an hour.

Upon completion of the training period, trainees will be promoted to Public Safety Communicator, starting at $34,537 annually.

The ideal candidates will have a high school diploma or GED and two years of general work experience, with at least one year with public contact. Spanish is not required for hiring, but could be a requirement depending on which function is assigned. Non-Spanish speakers are encouraged to apply.
