    Default Air Medical Dispatch Question

    Hey everyone, I'm looking around for a new dispatch possition and have a possible opportunity work for an air ambulance company. Can anyone who works in the communication center for an air ambulance service give some insight as to how you like it as compared to a 911 dispatch possition? Thanks!

    I do not work or have ever worked for an air ambuance, but I would imagine unless your in a heavily populated area with constant call outs it won't be as busy as a 911 center. The only calls your going to get are medical, obviously. Your calls will originate from 911 centers and you'll simply gather info from them and send out the chopper. It's not something I personally would want to do as opposed to what I can do in a 911 center.
