Hello everyone,

You may have noticed that a few members here (such as Lambda, Retired STR-SG, and BCarl) have their name in blue now and look like this:
Fire Alarm Technicians

I have created a special rank for fire alarm technicians, so that members on here know who is a tech and who is an enthusiast. This group will be for technicians only.

Eventually I will be adding custom sub-ranks for national certifications or other special positions in the industry. Upcoming so far will be NICET, IMSA, ASIS, etc, Certified, or a special rank for representatives of a fire alarm company. We have one member here who works for Gamewell-FCI who will be receiving that special rank.

I'm not sure if I have everyone so if you are a technician and wish to have this rank please PM to me ONE of the following:
-> The certification number for a NICET, IMSA, ASIS, or other national certification
-> A LinkedIn profile showing you work for a company
-> An employee profile on a company's website
-> A scan or photo of a business card with your name on it
-> Some other sort of proof that you are a technician.

I have to have proof because there are some members on here who would pretend to be a tech so they can get the status. No offense to those members... lol.

Anyway I have added some members to the group already who I know are techs. To the members already in the group:
If you have any kind of certification then please PM me the certification number and I will add you to a special rank.

Thank you everyone, and have a great day.

Hello Andrew,
How do you go about veting FA Tech's and for whom they say they are?
Thanks,
Paul

As Andrew said in the previous post, some sort of proof, including one of the following, has to be provided.
