Albany -- The City of Albany has a number of job openings for telecommunicators in their 911 Center. And they are asking good people who want to help their community to apply for these jobs.  

Right now the Albany 911 center has four job openings for people to answer their emergency assistance calls. But the city is adding staff, and by August they will have 11 job openings to answer 911 calls.

The starting salary is nearly $22,000 a year, and the city will train you.

They need people to answer emergency phone calls, and dispatch the help those people need. EMA Deputy Director Jim Vaught said "one minute they are calling someone to go to a fire, or to a shooting. And the next minute they may be asking the fire department to take a cat out of a tree. So it's never a dull moment. Everyday is different."

The City has several openings now, and wants to let people know about these good jobs.

For more information, check the city of Albany's website, or you can apply at the city's Department of Human Resources, located on the third floor of the Government Center, 222 Pine Ave., Suite 380.

Applications are received between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
