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 interested in volunteering with our radio/tech group NEED real-world experience, and playa experience is preferred.
