NASP Webinar-The New Impact: NFPA 921, 2021 Edition and NFPA 1033, 2022 Edition


Arson Investigators Subrogation Webinar Series (A Partnership with IAAI)

“The New Impact: NFPA 921, 2021 Edition and NFPA 1033, 2022 Edition”
Tuesday, September 15, 2020 – 1 p.m. EST

The 10th Edition of NFPA 921 and the 7th Edition of NFPA 1033 bring big changes to the two documents that have had the greatest impact on how fires are investigated and how fire cases are litigated. This webinar will provide a very high-level overview of the major changes to the documents and how they will impact both the investigation and the investigator. Not only is it important for the investigator to know and understand these changes, it is equally important for those who retain and vet investigators. Retaining investigators who are not remaining up to date with the most current information on these important documents can have an adverse effect on your case. This webinar will be presented by the current Chairman of the NFPA 921 Committee and a member of the NFPA 1033 Committee.
