Enjoy the Work Culture

The dispatcher profession is vital and unique in many ways. Not only will you assist callers who experience an emergency and bring help to their doorstep, you will also be the “lifeline” for those first responders going to that same incident scene. You will help with additional resources needed at the scene, assist incident commanders in managing their efforts, support law enforcement, and help coordinate all assets involved.

Performing all the duties mentioned above can be demanding at times. In recognition of the challenging assignment, Bexar County and the Fire Marshal’s Office offer a wide range of competitive benefits. The modern work environment at the Bexar Metro building provides a professional and contemporary workplace you would expect from a metropolitan emergency response center. Together with your team of dispatchers, you are an important asset of the county and fire marshal organizations.
