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 must complete a Knox County job application and either mail it to the Knox County Administrative Office at 62 Union Street in Rockland or drop it off in person at the same address. Application forms and job descriptions are available at the County Administrator’s office and on the County’s website: www.knoxcountymaine.gov. Emailed resumes will not be accepted as an application. You must submit an actual County application form. Any relevant certifications or training certificates should be submitted with your application. The County reserves the right to reject any and all applications and to select the most qualified applicant(s).
