This 3-day hands-on vehicle fire investigation training will be facilitated by Keith Fowler, Al Weicker, Jeff Francis, Ryan Harley and Kevin Bureau.

  • Factors to consider when analyzing the area of origin,
  • Identifying combustible materials in the area of origin & their ignition points (i.e.; oil plastics, gasoline),
