Fire Pattern Recognition, Identification and Certification

Length of Seminar: 2.5 Days
Instructor: Steve Chasteen

Course Objective:

Determining the origin of a fire involves the coordination of information derived from burn patterns, observations, and the chemistry and physics of fire.

This course will familiarize participants with the chemistry and physics involved in fire so that they are better able to make accurate determinations of the area of origin and possible causes. They will learn about the identifiable patterns in visible or measureable effects that are known as the “fingerprints” of fire. Participants will review actual case studies and are encouraged to bring a case for possible review.

Upon Completion:
Participants will be able to:

• Better manage phone and radio calls for critical incidents
• Recognize constricted thinking on the part of the caller
• Employ proper questioning techniques
• Ask follow-up questions to assist in managing the incident
