City of Costa Mesa is seeking a Telecommunications Manager. The Telecommunications Manager is the senior professional responsible for the planning, direction, and operation of the public safety Telecommunications Bureau. The Telecommunications Manager needs to bring instant credibility to their position as a public safety professional. In a world where emergency response has gotten significantly more complicated and specialized, the City seeks a manager who can create balance and unity. Technical competency and knowledge of emergency dispatch operations is necessary, but more importantly, the manager will provide leadership and a focus on building a positive work culture. The ability to recognize the nuances between police and fire calls for service and to tailor procedures equitably in this joint command environment is critical. At the same time, the manager will help bridge the differences that exist between Police and Fire & Rescue in order to provide a better, faster, and more integrated public safety communications center.
