Several Oakland fire inspectors lack proper certification

OAKLAND — Several city fire inspectors lack the “minimum” certification requirements for their positions and must complete classes by next week or they could be fired, according to a letter obtained by this newspaper and a fire administrator.

On April 27, co-Acting Fire Chief Darin White wrote to members of the embattled Fire Prevention Bureau that they must complete the training by May 12.

“City personnel records indicate that you do not currently possess an International Code Council Fire Inspector Certificate which is required by the City of Oakland classification specification (for fire inspector positions),” the letter begins. White cites the city’s requirements, which specify such training must be completed by the end of the worker’s nine-month probation period.

The employees have until next Friday to submit their valid certificate, otherwise they will not have completed the “minimum qualifications” for the position.
