Dispatcher/Call taker Gateway Industrial Power, Inc. Justice, IL,

As an Emergency medical dispatcher is a professional telecommunicator, tasked with the gathering of information related to medical emergencies, the provision of assistance and instructions by voice, prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services, and the dispatching and support of EMS resources responding to an emergency call. Dispatched Basic life support ambulances and Advanced life support ambulances according to level of care. Took calls from hospitals for transports and determined the level of service that needed to be dispatched. We also called on call nurses to handle Critical calls that ALS ambulances could not handle alone. As call taker, duties required getting patient medical history, address, phone numbers, medical insurance information and confirming appointments. I was the night time dispatcher and would be in control of handling 22 ambulances per night as well as a staff of 40 or more. When employees called out for work, I was responsible for doing call downs and filling the shifts as necessary according to medical skill. I also was an Emergency Medical Technician (BLS) and if staff was low, I would go and fill in if necessary.
