  • Any Fire Inspectors here?

    I've been a FF/EMT for the past 5 years and interview pretty well, I am interviewing for a Fire Inspector position with another department next week and I'm wondering what kind of different questions I should expect or any study materials that could point me in the right direction that differ from the typical FF interview questions.

    Thanks a bunch

          More than likely also is why? To you want to come out of operations

          Also can you handle working five days a week

          It is totally different, especially if you have had not much exposure to inspections

          You are the bad guy now, not there to save the world.

          Just find out what fire and building code they use and which year edition

          You do not need to know what the code says just which chapter to look an item up in

            Good answers already given. You might be taking a salary, benefit and pension reduction? If it is an entry position, they MAY not get too heavy on the codes and stuff. That might come later during the training process? What they might be looking for is your point of view and outlook regarding business and building inspections. They may ask you specific opinions and views on private property rights and warrant or warrantless inspections, but this may be a reach. Your job will be very important and is another aspect of the American Fire Service. Good people skills and an ability to not anger some people may also be important. Sounds like it could be an ideal job. Respectfully. Just me. HB of CJ (old coot) Very old school. Ex. Engineer.

              Thanks man. I've been practicing. My answers are all towards my customer service skills and wanting to work with building owners and making it an educational experience.
