Overview

Ambulance dispatchers, also called 9-1-1 operators or public safety telecommunicators, answer emergency and non-emergency calls. They take information from the caller and send the appropriate type and number of units. Ambulance dispatchers work in an emergency communication center, often called a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).
