Traveling Industrial Fire Alarm Technician
Delta has a large customer base of heavy industrial clients in the power and mining sectors. These sites are all across Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado primarily; however, some sites are in Idaho, Nevada, and Washington State. This position requires 80% travel, with 20% in the greater Salt Lake City area. The individual does not need to live in Salt Lake City—if willing to always travel between the above-named states, this could likely be a fulltime position on-the-road, if desired. The 90% of the travel time would be throughout Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. Many times this position, if applicable has adequate technical experience, would be stationed at one jobsite consecutively for 1-4 weeks at a time, but at a power plant or other industrial facility. Applicant must be willing to travel. Applicant ideally has prior industrial work experience working on fire alarm, fire protection systems, fire extinguishers, and/or electrical systems. We are especially encouraging applicants who are or were journeyman and/or master electricians, who have prior experience installing EMT and rigid conduit, who are willing to learn the low voltage fire alarm side. An active high voltage electrical license is NOT required.
The duties of this position include: testing and inspection of fire alarm systems; preventive maintenance with knowledge of multiple manufacturers’ products; installation of conduit (ideally both EMT and rigid; and a willingness to train others on their installations); daily communication with internal staff and external customers; completion of daily safety forms (site specific from the customer and internal company forms). Applicant needs to be self-motivated, able to work without daily supervision, customer service-oriented individual with strong communication and field technical skills. This individual will provide accurate and detailed inspections reports with all proper documentation of improvements and complications. Based on individual’s management and field experience, position could also include supervisory or training opportunities. This is a non-bargaining unit position.

Primary need is fire alarm systems; however, electrician basis is acceptable. Must be willing to be fully trained and capable on fire extinguishers within the first 3 months if no prior experience. As this is a non-bargaining unit position, position will not be installing fire sprinkler systems or any piping. General familiarity of all fire suppression systems, especially complex systems (clean agent, water mist, deluge, preaction, etc.) found at heavy industrial sites is preferred to avoid accidental discharge of specialty systems.
