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.
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.
Here’s a little video about volunteering with our communications branch.
