needs public safety employees, animal control

Work may be hard to find these days, but Escambia County has an urgent need to hire new blood.

“If you’re an adrenaline junky — if you like the fast pace, enjoy the ‘go-go-go’ — and the fulfilment of knowing you’ve made a difference at the end of the day, then yes, these are absolutely the jobs for you,” said Eric Gilmore, interim public safety director for Escambia County.

“It is important to get the jobs filled, because they are the front lines for public safety,” Gilmore explained. “They’re the people out in the field answering to 911 calls.

“We really need them to get them filled,” he continued. “So, when the public calls 911, we have the trained professional to send to them to handle their emergency.”

Types of work

The field of public safety is far from limited to merely occupations like police officers, sheriff’s deputies, state troopers or even federal agents.

Firefighters, paramedics, 911 dispatchers and a wide range of jail staff also fall under the professional category of “Public Safety.”

If you’re an animal lover, Escambia County Animal Services currently has nine job openings for future kennel technicians and animal control officers.
