Course Overview:

Time: 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

With the release of the new NFPA® 921, 2024 edition, it brings significant changes to the fire investigation industry. As a professional in the fire investigation field, it is imperative to be up-to-date with the latest changes for those cases when you are required to testify or answer questions in a deposition.
This edition includes some of the most significant changes of any edition since its introduction in 1992.
We will review chapter three definition changes, chapter four in methodology has changed. There was terminology removed we have previously followed or discussed.
Chapter 6 is the most significantly changed chapter in my opinion since its original release in 1992. We will spend time discussing how you may want to include the correct terminology in your report for future cases to be following the language and changes in this edition.
Chapter 9 had changes in the electrical section.
Chapter 13, safety has evolved with significant changes pertaining to safety. We will look at those changes and discuss the current proposed language in NFPA 1321 and current language in NFPA 1033.
Chapter 15 only added a pre-investigation team meeting.
I expected changes in chapter 27, and we certainly have seen a lot of changes in the updated chapter.
As with every new edition in our industry, we must be prepared for the challenges we may be met with in depositions and trials. You will receive the newest updated reports in compliance with the new documents, new critical tasks form, the updated questions for experts. These documents have been updated to the 2024 edition.
