I liked to work for Emergency Services
Chief Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Kandahar Air Field – 29 February 2016
This was another great job. I started out as a dispatcher and within three months I was promoted to the Chief Dispatcher. Challenging some days when there are a lot of emergencies but overall very rewarding.
A typical day had me answering calls from radios, walkie talkie's, phones and intercoms. Seven sources in all and they were quite busy. I learned a lot about the Fire Department and the Crash Fire Rescue Services. I had great coworkers and the small team really worked well together to complete tasks.
The hardest part of the job was being away from family all the time as this was a contract on an airfield in the Middle East. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the department and learning new skills.
I took 3 communications courses while in this position. I love to learn so this was a bonus.
