One important tool for any insurance claims professional responsible for fire cases is the newly published 2017 edition of NFPA 921, A Guide for Fire and Explosions Investigations. This engaging program utilizes visually compelling fire case examples to illustrate the current state of the art/science of forensic fire investigation and to help claim professionals ensure a complete and proper investigation in a fire-related case.
