The peril of fire and resulting smoke and water losses continue to present significant financial losses for our industry and take a tremendous toll on our policyholders. In this engaging seminar, you will witness firsthand the destructive power of fire and secondary damage from moisture. You’ll learn about fire investigations, legal considerations, and practical strategies for evidence preservation and tips for working with experts.

Participants have the rare opportunity to visit the Waterloo Region Emergency Services and Research Complex and witness a live burn. You will hear from forensic engineers, legal experts, fire service professionals and senior adjusters as they take you step-by-step through a fire loss.

This session is incredibly valuable regardless of your role:

  • As an adjuster you’ll learn in-depth insights into fire investigations that will help you manage your files whether you are adjusting a first party claim, defending a liability claim or pursuing recovery through subrogation.
  • As a broker you’ll gain a new perspective on the claims and investigation process—information that will help you support your clients after a loss.
  • As an underwriter this session will provide you with the specialized knowledge to interpret file notes and make informed underwriting decisions.

In the words of Arthur Brown “Fire I’ll take you to burn – Fire I’ll take you to learn” Don’t miss this Red Hot Session!
