Michael Boso, past president of the Central Ohio Code Officials Association and chief building official with the city of Grove City, presented the Fire Official of the Year Award to Tammy Green, fire safety inspector with the Jackson Township Division of Fire, at COCOA’s general membership meeting Nov. 13, 2013 at the Ohio Board of Building Standards in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
“The Grove City Building Division has a great working relationship with the Jackson Township Fire Department because of Tammy’s commitment to the code profession and the support she receives from her superiors and trustees,” Boso said. “She is an asset to the Grove City Building Division and very deserving of this award.”
She started her career as a firefighter/paramedic with Jackson Township Division of Fire in 1997 and became a fire safety inspector in 2001.
“I was totally surprised and honored,” she said.
Green is an International Code Council certified commercial building inspector and Ohio Board of Building Standards certified fire protection inspector. She works closely with the city of Grove City Building Division staff to perform commercial plans examinations and approve fire protection systems permits. She is an Ohio fire safety inspector instructor, secretary for the Central Ohio Juvenile Fire Setter Program’s Educator Committee, trustee for the Central Ohio Fire Prevention Association and a member of the Central Ohio Bed Bug Task Force.
“Tammy does a great job,” said Captain Bill Dolby of the Jackson Township Division of Fire. “She’s very meticulous, and works well with architects, builders and engineers.”
