When someone calls 9-1-1, seconds matter. They’re often in crisis, panicked, and need immediate help. Communications Medics at Austin-Travis County EMS provide this help: calmly, with clear instructions and words of encouragement over the phone. They are our “first” first responders and play a vital role in our third service EMS system at Austin-Travis County. If you are compassionate, caring, and great at multi-tasking, this is the job for you! We are looking for qualified candidates to provide this critical service from our state-of-the-art Communications center in Central East Austin.
Each new hire starts as a Cadet, attending a paid 8-week training academy. Following graduation of the academy, each Cadet must complete a field training period prior to being cleared to independent duty and serving as a Medic. Our Communications Medics answer 9-1-1 calls that require emergency medical services. As a 9-1-1 call-taker, they triage medical complaints, assess life threats and provide medical care and interventions over the phone.
The City of Austin’s Emergency Medical Services Department provides the 9-1-1 emergency medical response throughout Austin and Travis County, Texas, serving a population of over 2.2 million people. One of the many qualities that makes our organization unique is that we work independently as a third service public safety provider—this means our main focus is on emergency medicine, and our Medics are trusted as clinicians capable of providing excellent patient care in the field. We are looking for qualified individuals to join our elite team of Medics and help us change the lives of the people we serve. With an internal Paramedic program, over 20 specialized units, and opportunities to promote through the ranks of our organization, there is a fulfilling career waiting for you at ATCEMS!
Each new hire starts as a Cadet, attending a paid 8-week training academy.
