- 2017 edition of NFPA 921: Guide for Fire & Explosion Investigations -- Reflecting today's current practices, technologies, research, and concepts, NFPA 921 is the premier source for rendering scientific based opinions on origin and cause investigations along with incident responsibility. Chapter 1 is revised to support Fire Marshal and Fire Service organizations in the completion of reports from the National Fire Incident Report System (NFIRS). The chapter on Origin adds the concept of an origin matrix, addressing the impact of ventilation on origin determination. More color photos and graphics than ever before allow you to clearly communicate and demonstrate key concepts and examples. (Softbound, Approx. 394 pp., 2017)
- 2014 edition of NFPA 1033: Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigator -- This critical Standard identifies the minimum job performance requirements necessary to perform as a fire investigator in both the private and public sectors and applies to all fire investigations both structural and non-structural. The 2014 Standard adds three topics to the list of knowledge criteria -- fire protection systems; evidence documentation, collection, and preservation; and electricity and electrical systems. Also, while this edition still requires knowledge to be beyond the high school level, it does not necessarily have to be at a post-secondary level. (Softbound, Softbound, 16pp., 2014)
