Welcome to the Fire Inspectors Association of Nova Scotia (FIANS). I am coming to the end of my first term as President and I must say that it has been a great experience to date. We have put forward a number of training opportunities for members and non-members alike and we are moving forward with the strategic plan that was approved at our Annual General Meeting in May 2015. As part of this initiative, we have engaged a consultant, Bryan Roach, a man well known to the association and its members. Bryan’s role is to ensure that we stay on track with our plan and to help us with the work that is required to stay on track. We look forward to working with Bryan over the next number of years.
For members, please check out our web site periodically to catch up on new policies and training opportunities… and don’t forget that if you have any ideas for continuing education, contact your local representative. Also, I would encourage you to regularly attend your local meetings. This allows you an opportunity to know first-hand what is going on with FIANS.
In closing, I want to thank all those who have helped us move forward over these last years – the membership at large, the facilitators at our training sessions, our sponsors, the Board of Directors and the Office of the Fire Marshal. We would not be where we are today without your contributions to our association. Thank you.
