Using NFPA 921 to Meet the Professional Qualifications

For the Fire Investigator in NFPA 1033

NFPA instructors will present a two-day program to introduce students to the relationship between the fire investigator minimum job performance requirements (JPRs) outlined in NFPA 1033, and the guidelines and recommendations found in the latest edition of NFPA 921.  Students will learn how to navigate both documents, and be better able to utilize the wealth of knowledge found within.  The latest editions of NFPA 1033 and NFPA 921 are provided with registration.

Practical Aspects of Fire Investigation

Thank you to everyone who attended our May 2017 seminar.  During this five-day program, students reinforced their understanding of basic investigative methodology as well as learned failure analysis tools such as arc mapping, depth of calcination plotting, flame vector analysis and origin matrices.  Teams then applied their skills to five mock fire scenes and prepared comprehensive, well documented reports.  It was a fun and educational week (even in the rain!).

A special thank you to all the instructors who donated their time and knowledge, especially Thomas Sing of Quest Fire Analysis.  The RI IAAI would also like to thank Union Fire District for the use of their training facility.
