The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is looking for dynamic, community-minded individuals who are able to communicate calmly and effectively during a crisis situation to apply for a Communications Specialist Trainee position now available in the Sheriff's Emergency Services Dispatch Center.

"Communications Specialists are the backbone of our region's emergency response system," Assistant Sheriff Tim Kuzanek said. "On a daily basis, they work to save lives while helping to protect the safety of emergency responders in the field."

Applicants must be good communicators, able to interact well with members of the public, particularly in highly stressful, emotional situations, and able to coordinate multiple responding agencies. Applicant must also be willing to work flexible hours, including weekends and holidays.

"The hard work performed every day by the Communications Specialists in our dispatch center is rewarded through a high level of job satisfaction and the knowledge that they are an integral part of providing quality emergency response to Washoe County residents," Assistant Sheriff Kuzanek said.

Applications are being accepted through Friday, March 29, 2013. For additional information and a link to an online application, use the attached or go to:
