Our income is driven by our job. As the 911 operator, you are responsible for keeping the public safe.
For most people, the thought of making money from the public is frightening. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the most valuable aspect of the job is not the money you make. It is the ability to listen to the screams of the wounded and the dying, to see them through the eyes of those closest to them. When you are the 911 operator, you have the ability to save lives that you will never see again.
While I’m not sure anyone will actually make a living from their job, I am sure that the money you make is very important. And while I’m sure it isn’t a ton, it is certainly more than most other people make.
Most 911 operators make between $40,000 and $60,000 a year. Most of those salaries come from the city of your residence or state. As such, they need to be able to make a living, which is why most 911 operators are self-employed because they are able to work from home, on the weekends, while their families are at work.
911 operators are not the only people who make money from their 911 service. That being said, I have seen a few people in the industry that are self-employed. For example, one of our writers, who has worked as a 911 operator for quite some time, actually makes a living from writing articles. The other is that a lot of the calls that get sent out to the 911 emergency department are for non-emergency calls.
This is a good reason to hire a professional. If you don’t have the time to write articles, get someone else to do it for you. Most of the time these people make very little money, but they can usually get a good deal on the article they write if you hire them to write it for you.
It’s not all about the money. The fact is that most 911 operators make a good few hundred dollars per month. You can choose to spend it on your own car, boat, plane, or hotel, but the paychecks are generally not very good.
911 operators, as you may have noted, do not get paid for their service. It’s part of their job to give emergency operators the ability to get to the scene of an emergency without having to resort to the police or other emergency services. However, they can make a good living. While the average 911 operator makes over $100,000 per year, the city of Seattle actually pays these operators almost $35,000 per year.
The city of Seattle is only one of many small cities who make a decent living by working as 911 operators. Just like the rest of us, many other cities (like cities in other countries or small towns) will pay for these services.
When it comes to 911-related work, the city of Seattle actually pays the most. The reason for that is that 911 operators are required to be trained in first aid and emergency medicine, among other things. They also have to pass a certification exam at the local fire department.
