AHS Jobs Edmonton – Emergency Communications

Website Alberta Health Services

Job Description:

As an Emergency Communications Officer, you will provide safe and effective emergency medical call taking and dispatch services to ambulances. Through established guidelines, you will evaluate and process emergency and non-emergency calls, be responsible for making key decisions and contribute to the EMS dispatch process and strategies.

Job Responsibilities:

  • You’re a great communicator – when both talking and listening. Able to keep a cool head under pressure, you’re the calm, confident voice on the phone with 911 callers collecting the necessary information to dispatch emergency crews.
  • You can quickly and accurately transcribe calls as they come in, prioritize tasks on the fly, and clearly relay essential information.
  • Alberta Health Services (AHS) has an exciting role for an Emergency Communications Officer (ECO) in a beautiful and friendly northern community.
  • Nestled in the scenic Peace River valley, the Peace River Community Health Centre provides a full range of healthcare services.
  • Residents enjoy arts, sports, and social groups and activities – there are hockey teams for all ages and stages, summer jet-boat races, and easy access to nature for your favorite outdoor activities.
  • Canada’s first, fully-integrated provincial healthcare system, AHS has also been named among the top 100 Canadian employers, top 75 Alberta employers, and a top employer for diversity and young people. Discover a supportive employer, a career that fits your lifestyle, and endless opportunities for professional development.
  • This allowance is non-pensionable and is payable on an hourly basis for all hours paid at the basic rate of pay.
  • Candidates undergo a multi-step screening process.
  • Step one is an online prioritization assessment, step two assesses your listening and typing accuracy, and step three, a job interview.
  • The successful candidate will receive on-the-job training, followed by “buddy” shifts with an experienced ECO before working independently.

Job Requirements:

  • Completion of Grade 12 or equivalent.
  • Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) certification required; where the successful candidate does not currently hold EMD certification, the certification course will be provided upon hire.
