Be your own brand of hero
Hey! Psssst! Our friends over in the Knox Regional Communications Center could use some help!
Just out of curiosity, is being a super hero on your bucket list? Do you want to assist in the rescue of children, talk someone through how to do CPR, direct law enforcement and fire departments to incidents and keep them updated so everyone stays safe, send help when people are in vehicle accidents and stranded on the side of the road, be the calm and comforting voice on the phone when people are scared and need help? You don’t need to daydream anymore – those things can become a reality. Become a certified 9-1-1 dispatcher at the Knox Regional Communications Center. Okay, so you won’t get a cool costume with a cape and tights, but you’ll get to be a part of something super important. No one agency or organization can keep a community safe all on its own. It takes a team effort, and you can be a part of that. Knox County will train you – no experience is necessary. Individuals with good computer skills, an eye for details, and a willingness to learn can make dispatching a very rewarding career. Go to www.knoxcountymaine.gov for details!
So what’s on your bucket list?
