As an Emergency Medical Dispatch Support Officer (EMDSOs), you will answer emergency triple zero (000) phone calls and non-urgent phone calls, assess a patient's condition and provide step-by-step instructions in life-saving patient care where needed. You will be required to assess a patient's situation over the phone based on the information so that management of the patient can begin immediately. To successfully do this, you will use the valuable life-saving skills and knowledge you have gained through your training in a HLT31015 - Certificate III Ambulance Communications (call taking) as well as the mentoring and training support provided on the job.
