Communication Specialist Make It Possible at NYP
Communication Specialist - EMS
NewYork-Presbyterian is home to the largest hospital-based EMS service in New York City and top-talented Communication Specialists help make Make It Possible. In 1986, our service became one of the first participants in the newly formalized New York City 9-1-1 system. In 2001, NYP-EMS unit 10-DAVID was one of the very first resources on the scene of the September 11th attack. Four years later, our state-of-the art mobile command center was the centerpiece of a 10-day disaster recovery mission following Hurricane Katrina.
Today, our team includes over 500 EMTs, paramedics, Communication Specialists and support staff covering a response area of over 1,800 sq. miles. We're expansive, respected and growing and now you can join our team.
The Communications Specialist receives triage and dispatch requests for emergency medical services and ensures appropriate and timely response by emergency personnel. The Communications Specialist is responsible for the operations of the Communications Center and the coordination of EMS staff deployment, vehicle assignments and all operational details key to the safe, efficient and effective operation of the service throughout the tour.
