Current and Projected Employment.
Employment change. Fire inspectors and investigators are expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations. As cities and other areas grow, there are more buildings to inspect and fires to investigate. Employment of fire inspectors and investigators should grow along with the population.
Job prospects. Job seekers should expect keen competition. Those who have completed some fire suppression education at a community college, have experience in fire suppression or have experience and training related to criminal investigation should have an advantage.
