The nations dispatch system may be different depending on the local system. The fire and EMS system relies on the communication network to receive information vital to responding to fire and medical calls. Dispatch uses radio language to reduce the amount of traffic on the system. Using radio terminology such as copy meaning the message has been understood, vastly cuts down on unnecessary time spent communicating over the channels which may clog up the system and prevent urgent information to be relayed. Dispatch requires extreme attention to detail and strenuous training. This fire job requires a strong minded individual that is capable of thinking clearly and conveying messages in a clear and concise manner over the radio. Every position of the fire service is important to the functionality and overall effectiveness of the firefighters and fire department operations.
