As a Firefighter I was based at various stations in Edinburgh and as a Crew Manager in Livingston. During the last eight years of my career my role was a Fire Safety Enforcement Officer auditing commercial premises within the City of Edinburgh. I completed my career on secondment with City of Edinburgh Council HMO (house of multiple occupancy) team. This role involved consulting with private rented services officers, owners and agents on fire safety requirements for HMO properties.
