HotWheels 2017 Nisku – BROCHURE

Advanced Vehicle Fires 2017

The FIAA will be presenting a three-day vehicle fire investigation training seminar in Nisku, Alberta, Canada. Keith Fowler and guest speakers will be providing the training for this hands-on seminar. Syndicates will be formed, and on Day 2 each syndicate will investigate one of the different vehicle scenarios. Each syndicate will present its origin and cause report on Day 3.

This course will include:

How to determine the area of origin (examination of the degree of destruction, fire paths, fire patterns, etc.)

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)

Identifying ignition sources in the area of origin (i.e. electrical, friction, exhaust heat)

Arson – “What to look for?”

Recalls – “How to use them”

Review of actual case histories

Live electrical demonstration – how fuses, fusible links, relays etc. work (burning of wires, creating shorts, etc.)
