Now Hiring: Communications Specialist - Dispatch Trainee
Starting range: $43,316.00 - $44,590.00 annual; DOE

When someone falls victim to sudden illness or injury, emergency medical dispatchers are ready to answer their call for help. Imagine being able to assist people in crisis during their most challenging moment.

Hall Ambulance currently has openings for communication specialists (dispatcher trainees).  No experience is necessary, we will train you for this rewarding position where you can make a difference and provide compassionate service to our community.

As the access point to Kern County's emergency system for ambulance requests, you will ascertain what kind of assistance is needed, respond a basic or advanced life support ambulance, and sometimes relay life-saving instructions over the phone to assist those in need.

Be at the Center of Kern County's Emergency Medical Services Network

While the core of Hall Ambulance is its Ambulance Division, the Company's Operations Control Center (OCD) serves as its nerve center.  Working in unison with Kern County's Emergency Communications Center (ECC), OCD dispatches 100% of all ambulance requests received throughout Kern County's 8,132 square miles.

The work is nerve-rackingly fast-paced. Like their Ambulance Division counterparts, the dispatch center operates around the clock--never closing.  Our dispatchers on average, answer between 300-400 incoming call per day.  In 2022, these communications specialists processed over 100,000 emergency calls for medical aid.

Still, a casual observer would be in awe at the sense of cool, calm, and collectedness exhibited by these headset heroes!
