You can stay calm in an emotionally charged situation. You can think clearly even when you're in a stressful position. You want to help others and believe you have what it takes to perform in an emergency situation.

Emergency communications officers are a vital link in emergency situations and can be the difference between life and death in a crisis. As technology and services evolve, highly trained professionals with the skills and confidence to keep a level head under pressure are in demand.

I have eight months to help you learn to think like an emergency communications operator. You have the rest of your career to master that skill.
