Communications

 

Our dispatchers and communications technicians come from a variety of skill-sets and backgrounds. Some are military-trained, former taxi-dispatchers, amateur radio operators who have worked special events for years and a few are even professional and ex-dispatchers from a variety of agencies.iNet

When interviewing people for our dispatcher positions, we prefer people to have both playa and real world experience, but we can deal with just one or the other. Knowledge and a basic understanding of how 2-way radio systems function is highly recommended.

On the other hand, people interesting in volunteering with our radio/tech group NEED real world experience and playa experience is preferred.  We also offer year round positions for qualified people who are local to the Reno/Sparks area.
