  • Programs

    Sit-Along Program

    Our Sit-Along Program is one of a kind. Newly trained recruits are required to do this program if they score below an 89% on the final exam, and those that score 90% or above have the choice to do the sit along program or move on to an Evaluation.

    The Sit Along Program's training operators are our most successful dispatchers. The program consists of sitting in with an assigned TO for a required amount of time to learn and also get hands-on experience.  A basic evaluation is done after the sit-alongs are complete and your TO feels you will be fit to dispatch on your own.


    Certification Program

    Our Certification Program is our newest program that allows any dispatcher to participate in obtaining 1 and/or all of our 3 types of Certifications.

    911/EMD - Emergency Medical Dispatching is an advanced 911 operator level certificate. This certification gives qualified/certified operators the ability to provide basic medical instructions over the phone to 911 callers. It is integral so that we can help save or maintain the quality of life until Fire or EMS units arrive on the scene.

    Fire/EMS Dispatching - This Certification is an advanced level of Fire Control dispatching so that operators can properly do fire call outs with tones, with proper dissemination of information, plain English speech, and other important Fire/EMS related radio traffic like patient or scene updates.
