Non-domestic properties include, for example: hospitals, schools and colleges, public buildings, commercial and industrial premises, places of worship, shops, offices, animal premises and stables.
These activities complement the work our Community Safety teams perform across West Yorkshire, and has made a significant contribution to reducing the number of fires in West Yorkshire by 45% since 2002/2003.
Fire Inspection officers carry out fire safety audits, maintain our premises database and prepare reports on their findings. They publicise, promote and provide fire safety advice in a range of community languages to members of the public, and liaise with other enforcing agencies. They also prepare investigation reports and may attend court.
Being able to work on their own initiative and communicate effectively with co-workers, community members, landlords and other Agencies are important skills, as is producing good quality information and reports.
