Thank you,


An employee in this class is responsible for serving as a part-time Fire Inspector. Work is of average difficulty and includes limited responsibility for enforcing fire prevention codes. Previous experience in this activity is required as employees exercise some initiative and independent judgment in performing the less difficult inspectional tasks. More advanced inspections, which are performed under the immediate supervision of an experience inspector or supervisor, are also important aspects of work in this class. Employees must be capable of maintaining accurate records, drafting complete and concise reports, and performing tasks requiring light to moderate physical exertion. Most activities are performed in the field, requiring the operation of a lightweight motor vehicle in traveling among work sites as well as extensive public contact.

This is a part-time position and work schedules vary and might include nights, weekends and holidays on a regular or irregular basis. Work is reviewed through consultations, observation and submitted reports.
