Communications Staff
The Storey County Communication Center’s team includes six trained Communications Specialists who are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Storey County certifies all Communications Specialists to be emergency medical dispatchers (EMD’s). This means through telephone questioning, the dispatcher can continuously access patient information which results in selecting appropriate field response for the medical incident. The dispatcher can also provide pre-arrival instructions to the calling party to assist in stabilizing patient condition until paramedics arrive.
