Do You Have What It Takes?
We are pleased that you are interested in employment with the Humphreys County Emergency Communications District. Before you download the employment application, we want to preview what you can expect as a Humphreys County Emergency Communications District employee.
We find that many applicants do not fully understand what the 9-1-1 Center does because the many duties performed are not always visible to the public/community. A Dispatch Position can be very rewarding if you like helping people and your community, however dispatching is hard work. You would be responsible for dispatching to several law enforcement, fire and EMS agencies, answering 9-1-1 calls, multiple phone lines, and entering information into a Computer Aided Dispatch system; all simultaneously. We often deal with callers who come to us in extreme emotional stress expecting help and a prompt professional response.
We expect all citizens to be treated with equality, dignity and respect at all times and under all circumstances. We expect employees to be alert and interested in helping the citizens of our county at all times. This is not an optional responsibility.
The 911 Center operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We do not close for holidays, weekends or at night. The opportunity to be off for most holidays, weekends, etc., is rare.
We are a drug free workplace and require all employees to undergo pre-employment and random drug screens. All employees must pass a thorough background investigation, psychological testing and a physical prior to employment.
We are looking for high quality employees who are seeking a position that is challenging, yet rewarding. If a job as a Humphreys County Emergency Communications District employee interests you, please download and complete the Employment Application linked below.
You may drop the completed application off at the 911 Center at 103 East Main St. in Waverly. If you are unable to download the application, copies are available at the 911 Center 24 hours a day. We accept applications year round whether or not there is an open position.
Thanks for your interest!
