“We are not a professional union, but together, we are a union of professionals!”
“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” -- Kofi Annan
This is a special portal we’d originally set up to help people with portable devices (iPhones®, Blackberries®, etc) navigate the “old” ASTTBC website. While the new site has some similarities with ASTTBC’s main website (visually), there have been significant other changes incorporated. For one thing, their forms page no longer provides current or “fillable” forms (they’re considered “samples” only). For another, they’ve largely withdrawn all the links to some really informative newsletters they used to publish called Suppress! and Tech’s Fire Break. This means that the Fire Technicians Network is likely the only remaining repositories where this information is still available. Canadian Standards based life safety equipment testing and inspection reports can be accessed on our FORMS page.
We’ve also provided a link to ASTTBC’s Practice Guideline, which actually inspired us to produce our own Professional Practice Manual! All of ASTTBC’s past newsletters are also available. Simply click on the links provided below.
What we’re all about! We are not affiliated with ASTTBC, CFAA, CANASA, NFPA, NAFED, or NICET (although we encourage you to explore and objectively evaluate the benefits associated with supporting their individual efforts). Membership in the Fire Technicians Network is entirely voluntary. Are you up to the challenge of demonstrating your commitment to public safety and the highest standard of professional practice?
