Fire Inspectors and Investigators
Nature of the Work
Fire inspectors visit and inspect businesses and other places of assembly each year to ensure that these places meet State and local fire codes. These inspectors may also work with developers and planners to check and approve plans for new buildings and to inspect buildings under construction. Fire investigators determine the causes of fires. They collect evidence, interview witnesses, and prepare reports on fires in cases in which the cause may be arson or criminal negligence. In national forests and parks, forest fire inspectors and prevention specialists spot fires from watchtowers and report the fires to headquarters by telephone or radio. They also patrol to ensure that travelers and campers comply with fire regulations.
