Citizen Representatives are needed to serve on the Bureau of Emergency Communications User Board. BOEC is a dynamic and fast-paced work group providing critical 911 call answering and emergency police, fire, and medical dispatch service to all of Multnomah County. The Board reviews proposed policy changes and advises the Director and/or the Commissioner-in-Charge regarding other matters which may arise in connection with the 911 system and operations. Truly a fascinating volunteer opportunity!
There should be three citizen representatives on this Board: one representing the geographical area west of the Willamette River; one from between the Willamette River and 122nd Avenue; and one from east of 122nd Avenue; the intent being to provide cross-county representation. We already have one citizen on the Board from Gresham, so we need one representative from the west side of Portland, one from the east side living west of 122nd. The Board meets once per month, during the day for one hour, at the Emergency Communications headquarters in East Portland. No experience necessary. The successful applicants must pass a security background check.
