The SL-EMA needs you!

Image
We are small but we are growing team of dedicated and enthusiastic dispatchers and now we need you!. The SL-EMA is looking for people interested in being dispatchers. While experience is always preferred none is needed and we would be happy to provide training.

We are also looking for new agencies to dispatch for. See our application page located here.

Also, we are now capable of group notices for mutual aid in both the SLIAFF and SLFOP groups. I'd like to take a moment to thank Nick Philly, Lilly Laville, Tony Kelleher, and of course Carla Laville for continually telling me "you never know til you try."
