El Paso Fire Department Hiring Communicator Trainees

The El Paso Fire Department is 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.

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.

“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 at http://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/elpaso 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.
