In today’s communication centers, the need for Tactical Dispatchers is increasing. Agencies are sending their 9-1-1 Telecommunicators into field situations to staff communications vehicles for a variety of incidents. In this course, Telecommunicators will be given information on the tactics and resources used in the field.
This hands-on, interactive workshop will allow participants to learn new methods, discuss changing trends, and practice with exercises and group discussions. Topics will include: How ICS & NIMS apply to Tactical Dispatching, on-scene roles and responsibilities, proper use of common field communication technology, mutual aid for Emergency Communications and continued education & training.
