Senior Telecommunicator Job Description

By Vincent Corrao posted 05-15-2019 09:41

We at the Tuscaloosa County Emergency Communications District are looking into the development of a position titled "Senior Telecommunicator".  We plan to insert this position classification as a step above a basic telecommunicator and under the position of shift supervisor. At a minimum, the individual must have obtained a C.T.O. certification which is in good standing. We are in budget preparations for the upcoming fiscal year. Your input would be invaluable.
Does any agency have a sample job description, for an equivalent position, they could send me?
Thank you,

Vincent Corrao
Deputy Director

This is what we use in New Jersey. Its some additional responsibilities (like training) than the Public Safety Telecommunicator position. In my agency, they are seen more as a shift supervisor, and that allows the Supervisor to handle more admin jobs.

We have three of these positions at our agency, to which I am one of.  I can send you some information if you are still interested!
