Fire Safety graduates can find careers as fire fighters as well as fire inspectors and investigators.
Employment of fire inspectors and investigators should grow along with the population. As cities and other areas grow, there are more buildings to inspect and fires to investigate.
All fire safety professionals work in hazardous conditions. Whether as a fire fighter, inspector or investigator, they are always on the go and on their feet.
In 2008, 66% of all fire fighters were union members or covered by a union contract. Fire fighters receive benefits that usually include medical and liability insurance, vacation and sick leave, and some paid holidays. Almost all fire departments provide protective clothing (helmets, boots, and coats) and breathing apparatus, and many also provide dress uniforms. Fire fighters generally are covered by pension plans, which often offer retirement at half pay after 25 years of service or if the individual is disabled in the line of duty.
