CBRM look­ing to hire two fire preven­tion of­fi­cers

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — The Cape Breton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity is look­ing for a pair of fire preven­tion of­fi­cers.

The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is Aug. 18 and po­ten­tial can­di­dates are en­cour­aged to check out the list of min­i­mum qual­i­fi­ca­tions that is listed on the of­fi­cial web­site of the CBRM. Deputy fire chief Chris March said the need for the new fire preven­tion of­fi­cers comes in light of some re­cent re­tire­ments and the trans­fer­ring of qual­i­fied per­son­nel into the build­ing in­spec­tion de­part­ment.

“We don’t have any left in fire ser­vices now and there is only one in build­ings who is crosstrained to do both, so we’ve reached the point where we have to hire our own be­cause we have pro­vin­cial obli­ga­tions we have to ful­fill,” said March.

He said the suc­cess­ful can­di­dates will fo­cus mostly on fire code en­force­ment, but will also be in­volved in pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion and in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

The new of­fi­cers will work un­der the di­rec­tion of the deputy chief of vol­un­teer sup­port, preven­tion and train­ing.
