I t’s a career that really helps to save lives in a unique way: Through Prevention. And for Fire Protection Inspector Monique Notice, joining our Department was one way she could help to spread a message of being safe and aware to the public.
“When I’m working as an Inspector, my thought process is always what would happen if there were an emergency at this location and our rescuers had to show up here? Is the site safe and is there proper signage for them to be here,” she explained. “We work to make sure that everyone at these sites are in a safe place.”
Notice works in our Construction, Demolition and Abatement Unit, which is a specialized area where our members help to inspect contractor certifications and ensure that development sites are safe throughout the city. Like other inspectors, members of this unit also help to ensure that codes and regulations are enforced to help maintain public safety.
“Communicating with the public is all about educating them. A lot of times, we go onto the site and help with what they may need. We help to protect life and property in the city and it’s a great career,” she added.
