Fire Safety Technicians
Technical careers in fire prevention and control are predicted to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2022. Technicians will be needed to help ensure that existing buildings and newly constructed ones have the correct, and functioning, fire-protection and safety systems. The greatest increase in employment will be in industry. More industries are finding that the cost of replacing buildings and property destroyed by fire is greater than the yearly cost of fire protection and the expertise and equipment of these specialists.
