JANUARY 2016
 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Vancouver, British Columbia - Here’s wishing everyone a joyous, healthy, and safe 2016.  Let’s all try to make it a year to remember!

 

ANNOUNCING THE GREAT CANADIAN FIRE ALARM TECHNICIAN CHALLENGE!

Vancouver, British Columbia - We’re issuing a challenge to all Canadian fire protection technicians engaged in annual testing or Verification of fire alarm systems across the nation.  And we’re giving away some pretty awesome prizes to the three winning entries that are drawn.  The contest closes on February 29, 2016 (yup, it’s a leap year), so you’ve got lots of time to submit your answers.  For more details, please visit our CONTESTS page!

 

TECHNICIAN MEET AND GREET!  HELP US RING IN THE NEW YEAR!

Burnaby, British Columbia - The Technician Meet and Greet originally scheduled for November 27th, 2015 failed to reach the minimum number of seats needed to host the event.  The date was a poor choice due to a number of conflicting Christmas/year end events scheduled for the same day.  Everyone that purchased tickets should have received their full refunds by now.

The Firefighters Hall in Burnaby British Columbia will host the January 29th, 2016 Meet and Greet which, as it turns out, is going to be our inaugural dinner.  You’ll be treated to a fabulous gourmet meal and brought up to speed on the various issues, bulletins, notifications, and testing solutions affecting your practice.  The first four (or so) meetings we’re going to be delving into the fascinating subject of CAN/ULC-S536.  We’re reaching out to all RFPT’s, trainees, and attendees/graduates of the fire alarm courses in the Lower Mainland to attend so if you miss January’s meeting, don’t sweat it, drop by in February or the months following!  A Certificate of Attendance, handouts, and beer (or wine) will be provided. 

We’ll also be featuring an intriguing line-up of amazing guest speakers.  Life truly doesn’t get any better than this - dinner, drinks AND education.  You’ll have to complete the online exam (which, incidentally, you can do in your underwear from the warm comfort of your home) to receive your certificate, good for 2.5 hours of ongoing education credits.

Click on the EVENTS link on our HOME page or on the menu bar to the right!  Members and their significant others (by all means bring them for a chance to show off what you do every day) get a reduced rate.  Ten dollars from every ticket will be donated to the CKNW Orphans Fund.  Our goal is $3000.00 per event so “let’s fill them seats”!
