“What Every Investigator Needs To Know”

Investigating a fire fatality is one of the most complex and demanding scenes the investigator will encounter. A fatality at the scene of a fire introduces multiple new challenges to the investigation. Due in part to the relative infrequency fire fatalities are encountered, as well as the extra scrutiny and pressure accompanied with the fatality, these scenes can produce unnecessary stress. This presentation will help the investigator manage the scene effectively and efficiently.
In addition, the fire investigator will most likely be investigating the scene with a Medical Examiner/Coroner Investigator, Police Department detective and possibly other entities. Understanding each other’s roles will facilitate a better, more thorough and well-run investigation.
This presentation is designed to:
1) Increase the investigators skill in processing a fire fatality
2) Develop greater understanding between multiple agencies, thereby increasing working relationships and making for a more effectively run scene
3) Explain fire effects on the body and the body’s role in fires
4) Educate on the role of the Medical Examiner/Coroner and the postmortem exam; what happens and what can we hope to learn from it
Target Audience:
The material will be relevant to Fire Investigators, both public and private, Law Enforcement Officers, Crime Scene Technicians, and those in the forensic medical community.
