City to host hiring event for 911 operators
If you want to make a difference in the community and serve residents when they need help the most, you may be the next 911 telecommunicator for the City of Dallas.
A 911 telecommunicator handles emergency and non-emergency telephone calls and requests service in various areas to ensure residents’ needs are met with efficiency.
“Serving the City of Dallas as a 911 call taker is critical to our community,” said 911 Comm & Technology Administrator Robert Uribe. “Being first responders, 911 call-takers gather critical information needed for police and fire to arrive in a timely and safe manner. Your work will help someone every day.”
If you’re interested in joining the 911 response team, the Dallas Police Department is hosting two 911 telecommunicator hiring events during the month of July.
The hiring events take place 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on July 9 and 17, and are being held at Dallas Police Headquarters, 1400 Botham Jean Blvd. During these events, those interested in becoming a 911 telecommunicator will be able to learn about the position and apply immediately. Applicants will be able to progress through most of the hiring process during the event.
