Communications Operator - Medical Evaluation
Applicants who successfully pass the Background Investigation stage are offered a "conditional offer of employment" pending successful completion of the medical evaluation stage.
Applicants must meet the physical requirements for a Communications Operator, including hearing necessary to perform the duties of the position. Communications Operators must be free from any physical condition which might adversely affect the exercise of public safety dispatching duties. The California Government Code requires that physical condition shall be evaluated by a licensed physician and surgeon. An applicant will first complete a medical history statement and then set up an appointment at a local clinic within his or her geographical area. Lastly, a state doctor will review the medical report.
