Fire Safety Advisors are crucial roles in the pursuit of improved fire safety
What is a Fire Safety Advisor?
Fire Safety Advisor's play a critical role in local community safety. An advisor will undertake fire safety audits and provide fire safety advice and guidance to local authorities, businesses, the public and to professional and other regulatory bodies. The role is a uniformed, non-operational role.
If you have strong interpersonal skills including the ability to deliver advice and guidance verbally and in writing and are passionate about public safety and service this could be the role for you. A Fire Safety Advisor will undertake inspections and audits of fire risk within existing buildings and premises. They will analyse information relating to fire safety inspections or investigations and present reports setting out the findings.
They develop great understanding of fire safety advice and deliver this advice to members of the public, business and stakeholder through organised fire safety campaigns and initiatives and will shadow peers on risk-based inspections within a region.
This role offers lots of community interactions and the NFCC are supporting the recruitment of these roles for Fire and Rescue Services across the UK following the introduction of the new Building Safety Regulator and fire safety legislation.
