DISPATCH PERSONNEL

The Boise Dispatch Center is operated with one center manager, two assistant center managers, eight dispatchers, and one office assistant. The center manager is the main floor supervisor and the core to our operations. The two assistant center managers work together to provide employee supervision and coordination, and are the logistics and intel coordinators. Of the nine dispatchers; one is the primary aircraft dispatcher, one is the assistant aviation dispatcher and the other is a night dispatcher. Each also had an area of responsibility which could include Bureau of Land Management, Boise National Forest, or Southwest Idaho Department of Lands.
