Default Time to start looking for a new job. Need advice.

Had a meeting with the Mayor today and he tells us that in 3-5 months we will no longer have a job. I am a 911 dispatcher, they are merging all of the communications centers in the county into 1. We knew this was going to happen but we were told it wouldnt happen for a year and a half.

So I am faced with a dilema. Lose all of my seniority and vacation time and start all over again in the same field and take a 10k per year pay cut. or start a new career path.

Who out there has moved on from public safety and went into a new line of work and what did you do? My problem is that I didnt go to college and dont have a degree, I found this job before going to college and assumed it would be a safe career path and couldnt justify the expense of college. WHOOPS!

I have made too much money working 3 jobs to even qualify for government assistance.

I am open to suggestions if anyone has them, thanks!
