20 years fire industry experience and still learning (where does the time go) My first opportunity was with Briton Fire as a Business Development Manager from there I progressed through fire extinguisher maintenance, fire alarm inspection and testing and studying fire safety. Moving into the oil and Gas sector provided great experience over the next 5 years. Starting Central Fire Protection Scotland Ltd in 2013 has been my biggest and most enjoyable challenge to date. Here’s looking forward to the next 20.
I have worked for Central Fire Protection since 2017 and enjoy keeping the office side of things ticking over. I qualified as a teacher so the fire industry was never something I imagined I would end up in, but enjoy both ensuring all our customers fire safety needs are kept up-to-date and that the engineers have all the documentation they need at the right time. When not working for Central Fire Protection I am also a qualified nutritional therapist and love anything to do with health & wellbeing much to all the engineers’ delight!
I have over 25 years electrical experience. This goes from completing an approved apprenticeship to being the Qualifying Supervisor and electrical duty holder for a leading national student accommodation provider. I have expanded my skill set over the years and have 7 years Facilities Management experience as a Compliance Manager, covering HV/LV electrical systems, fire safety, water hygiene, asbestos management, lightning protection and mechanical services. I am also NEBOSH trained in health and safety management.
I currently work as a Fire Safety Technician maintaining fire alarm systems, emergency lighting and providing annual maintenance of fire extinguishers for our new and existing clients. I am currently attending day release to Granton College where I am studying Fire & Security Electrical Installation.
