RECENT ADDITIONS TO THE FIRE INVESTIGATOR DIRECTORY (Temporarily Under Maintenance)
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets the bar for the scientific investigation of fires and explosions in North America. The NFPA 921 (2014 Edition) Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations purpose is to establish guidelines and recommendation for the safe and systematic investigation or analysis of fire and explosion incidents. It is the foremost guide for rendering accurate opinions as to incident origin, responsibility, cause and prevention of fires and explosions. This guide uses the Scientific Method as its basis for thorough analysis, and covers topics from basic methodology to evidence collection and failure analysis. Topics also include analysis of high-rise fires, industrial plant explosions, outdoor fires and motor vehicle fires. Fire Investigators listed on our directory rely heavily on the wealth of information provided by NFPA and their 921 guide along with many years of field experience and formalized education.
