Portions of the new edition of NFPA 921 Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations is being discussed and taught at the National Association of Fire Investigation (NAFI) 2014 International Fire, Arson, and Explosion Investigation Training Program at Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond Kentucky. I am attending the training program to answer any questions on the 2014 edition of 921 and 1033 Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigators. The NAFI program is being attended by Public and Private Fire investigators, Engineers, Attorneys and Students from Eastern Kentucky University. The program started with the Randy Watson from SEA Limited and Chair of the 921 Technical Committee discussing Methodology of Fire Investigation according to the 2014 edition of NFPA 921. EKU Professor Greg Gorbett is teaching Fire Pattern Analysis and Fire Dynamics.
The overall opinion from conference attendees on the new colorized edition of 921 has been very positive and some stated this was a long time coming and the color photographs will enhance the use of NFPA 921.
