Carlton Noel Campbell, Fireguard Department Manager at CBM, CORP discusses New York City’s plans to increase fireguard personnel to safeguard the population.
Syosset, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2014 -- Bringing expertise to the table Carlton Noel Campbell, Fireguard Department Manager at CBM, CORP speaks to the rising demand for certified fireguards in New York City. Having received inquires for needed personnel in New Jersey and Chicago as well New York Campbell discusses the burgeoning industry always in need of competent professionals. At the same time he sends out an invitation for trained and certified fireguards to seek employment with CBM, CORP, one of New York City’s most requested maintenance companies.
Having recently sat with members of the city council and the mayor’s office Campbell signals the workforce to the city’s intention to increase safety guidelines and create jobs. “The officials I spoke with are concerned about some major incidents that have occurred due to a lack of safety regulations. There’s no doubt that as our major cities grow, and our population rises, there will be an increased need for fire safety in our scaling towers. Thankfully the city government is aware that we need to increase our safety awareness and become receptive to changes in safety protocols.”
Endeavoring to clear up the confusion surrounding exactly what it takes to become a fireguard Campbell tells those interested in becoming a fireguard professional that education is a rather simple matter. While the marketplace offers several agencies for fireguard education their services are unnecessarily costly especially when private citizens can essentially educate themselves. “In this economy, I want to help people who are interested in becoming a fireguard. They can rest assured, not only is training rather easy to do with the help of FDNY study guides available online but the test is fairly easy to pass. CMB, CORP has an informational blog to help them as well.” Campbell adds.
Applicants can simply download the FDNY study guide, study at their own pace, and then quickly and inexpensively take the FDNY test to become a fireguard in as little as one week or two days. This bit of insight is the difference between spending weeks or days in an agency classroom having paid hundreds of dollars for an unnecessary program.
Once a person has studied for fireguard certification they can take the fireguard written test every Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM. The test is in a written and multiple choice format and a participant needs at least a 70% to pass. The Certificate of Fitness or Fireguard Card comes at a cost of $25 for testing the first time and $15 for renewals. Making it even easier to complete the process the test can be paid for via credit card, cash, money order, or personal check made payable to the New York City Fire Department.
Upon obtaining a Certificate of Fitness fireguards can seek employment at CBM, CORP. The major maintenance company is currently looking for 200 fireguards with any of the following certifications; F-01 Citywide Fireguard for Impairment, F-03 Indoor Place of Assembly Safety Personnel, F-04 Outdoor Place of Assembly Safety Personnel, F-60 Fireguard For Torch Operations and Construction Sites and F-91 Fireguard For Hotel/Motel and Office Buildings. While all applicants will be listed in the order that CBM, CORP receives contact candidates can apply via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 516.364.0957. Fireguard applicants can obtain application forms at the Public Certification Unit, 1st floor, 9 Metro Tech Center, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
