Now Hiring! Central Lane 9-1-1 center! It's a rewarding and demanding profession.
Telecommunicators are often the first point of contact (the first “first responders”) when the public reaches out for help, and they are required to gather and relay information from people who are under extreme stress, while remaining calm and composed.
