LOCOM Dispatcher Graduates from Basic Telecommunicator Academy
Congratulations to our newest Basic Telecommunicator Academy Graduate, Emily Teters! Emily completed three weeks at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) academy in Salem in order to receive her Basic Certification, which the State requires for emergency dispatchers. This required training is to help establish a baseline of essential knowledge while developing dispatch and call-taking-related skills that students can take with them as they continue their training at their dispatch agencies. Emily is a fantastic addition to Lake Oswego Communications (LOCOM) and is known for her positive attitude. We cannot wait for her to continue her training in order to earn her solo status as a dispatcher.
On her days off you can find her hiking with her dog Ash, thrifting, or buying more emotional support plants at the nearest nursery.
