What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Fire Safety Director in New York:
"Stay Friendly But Very Professional At All Times."
Keep on top of all the log books, make sure you do all your routine daily, weekly inspections. Make sure all semi annual, bi-annually and annual maintenance for the building you're responsible for are done on time and up-to-date. Never let any of your licences expire, stay current with National and local laws; go back to school if need be to stay relevant and employable. Make sure your fire brigade, floor wardens and building evacuation supervisors are properly trained and available in case of an building emergency or incident.
