NASP Webinar-Fire Spread-Beyond Origin and Cause


Arson Investigators Subrogation Webinar Series (A Partnership with IAAI)

“Fire Spread – Beyond Origin and Cause”
Tuesday, September 17, 2019 – 1 p.m. EST

This webinar will focus on the matter of 'spread' in subrogation matters, as opposed to the traditional origin and cause. This is primarily for fire losses, although can also entail water losses or other aspects of property damage. Often, the origin and/or cause of a loss cannot be determined, although that may not mean that subrogation is a lost cause when the spread of the loss can be a critical factor. Related to fires, this can be the fuel loading, suppression system, detection or alarm system, egress components, occupant or fire department response, or several other factors.
