Introduction to Fire Origin and Cause, 4th Edition is a manual designed to train fire fighters beyond the certification level and make them better qualified. The manual addresses key sections of NFPA 1001 (2013 edition) and NFPA 1021 (2009 edition) that focus on a fire service responder's responsibility to begin the process of fire investigation. This includes determining where a fire began and how it started. The manual is intended for firefighters and company officers who may be called upon to protect evidence that may be of value to an investigation or begin the investigation of the fire themselves. The manual packs a lot of valuable information into seven chapters including fire behavior, scene security, scene safety during investigation, protection and collection of evidence, fire pattern identification and analysis, and origin and cause determination.

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.

NFPA Compliant

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.

Additional Topics

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.
