NASP Webinar-Fire Scene Health and Safety Considerations in the Post-Fire Environment


Arson Investigators Subrogation Webinar Series (A Partnership with IAAI)

“Fire Scene Health and Safety Considerations in the Post-Fire Environment”
Tuesday, July 21, 2020 – 1 p.m. EDT

The International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) has undertaken an initiative to change the health and safety culture of all who enter post-extinguishment fire scenes. As we continue to learn about the many adverse health effects of the toxic gases, vapors, and particulates that persist at these scenes after the fire is out, it becomes increasingly necessary to adequately protect ourselves from the chronic effects of the many cancer-causing agents present. Highly relevant to anyone who spends time in this environment, this presentation, based on the IAAI’s ongoing research and groundbreaking best practices white paper, will address the many changes at today’s fire scenes, the latest research findings in this area, and the mitigation actions and methodologies that should be used.

Presenters – Chris Konzelmann – White & Williams and Jeff Pauley - IAAI
