Fire investigation is all about the science! A fire cause is not so because the investigator says it is, it’s so because the science says it can’t be otherwise. This session will take you through an in-depth tour of the due process involved in a fire investigation and further widely recognized by the courts. Gain a better understanding of fire by exploring how it ignites, evolves and can be misread!

Discuss exothermic reactions, the fire triangle and fire tetrahedron
Describe typical sources of energy, heat transmission methods and phase changes
Explain the difference between heat and temperature
Determine origin and cause of a fire
Explore case studies demonstrating the science behind fire investigations
