    Default Any Federal Dispatchers?

    Hi everyone...I browse the firehouse forum quite frequently looking for tips and advice and was just curious if anyone on here works for an Army, AF, or any other military installation as a emergency services dispatcher or public safety dispatcher? I am trying to get hired and have been working really hard on refining my resume on USAJOBS and I also am certified at HAZMAT Awareness and PUBLIC SAFETY TELECOMMUNICATOR I/II at the federal level. Basically, I was looking for any advice, tips, or to share your experience w/ getting hired or the hiring process. Also, are there are others classes or certifications that may be helpful other than EMD? Thanks..your help is much appreciated

    Cool Federal Dispatchers.....

    Keep an eye out for Fort Irwin Fire Department in So. California. We're headed that way and I believe will be hiring 5 additional Dispatchers. Lemme know if you're interested.

    wow..that sounds like a tremendous opportunity. I really want to work in the federal system. I have several family members that worked for the DOD and they have nothing but good things to say about the experience and benefits. Eventually, I would like to be a firefighter down the road but I am more than willing to travel almost anywhere in the US and start from the beginning learning the dispatcher side of fire operations. Are you located at a base out in CA Mikey?
