The Knox Regional Communications Center (KRCC) is currently looking for eager, dedicated individuals interested in a career in emergency communications. Dispatchers handle requests for all law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services received via 9-1-1, telephone, intercom, and radio. The dispatcher also documents calls using computer software systems and established protocols. Dispatchers frequently interact with people who are agitated and under stress, and must have the ability to remain calm.
Applicants must be high school graduates or equivalent, be able to type at least 40 wpm, have excellent communication skills, and have no criminal record. No prior experience is required, and the KRCC is willing to train a qualified candidate who is interested in emergency communications as a career.
The County provides an excellent benefits package to full-time employees including health insurance (100% paid for the employee, and 75% for family coverage), paid vacation and sick leave, retirement plan, and other voluntary benefits.
Interested applicants may apply electronically on JobsinMe.com, or email a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application forms and job descriptions are also available at the County Administrator’s office, located on the ground floor of the Knox County Courthouse, 62 Union St. in Rockland, and on the County’s website: www.knoxcountymaine.gov.
