Determining the origin and cause of fires that harm property and people is a crucial aspect of fire scene investigation. If you are a firefighter or a company officer who needs to increase your understanding of fire origin and cause beyond the certification level, Introduction to Fire Origin and Cause, 4th Edition, is the perfect educational resource for you.
The text addresses how to begin fire scene investigations using two of the most trusted resources on the subject: NFPA 1001 (2013 edition) and NFPA 1021 (2009 edition). Using sections from these standards, the book explains how to start the investigation process by assessing how and where a fire began, and the fire department’s responsibility to do so.
The firefighting community’s broad acceptance of NFPA standards makes them invaluable sources of information for fire service responders, as the information translates easily from one fire scene to another. As an investigator, your knowledge of fire scenes should have the broadest application; memorizing information from NFPA standards ensures that it does.
In addition to addressing fire origin and cause, Introduction to Fire Origin and Cause, 4th Edition, covers multiple subject areas that are equally valuable for performing fire scene investigations: fire scene evidence collection and protection, fire behavior, fire scene security, identification and analysis of fire patterns and the importance of fire scene safety during investigations.
