Protect people by assessing the level of fire safety in buildings

In your daily work you will interact with others in the community and attend meetings, such as safety advisory groups, to discuss all aspects of fire safety. You will also provide support and training within the community, this will include mentoring and training, to ensure effective sharing of knowledge.
