Interconnected technology is everywhere now; ring cameras, smart homes, self-driving vehicles, utility sensor data. Have you ever wondered how you can use this data to investigate a fire claim? This class, based on doctoral research conducted by ATF Supervisory Special Agent Dawn Dodsworth, will discuss how the use of data from the Internet of Things connected building systems can assist the fire investigator in narrowing down the area of origin, thus making conclusions more empirical. This class is designed for insurance professionals who handle fire claims and want to learn more about the data that can be harnessed from the Internet of Things in order to investigate claims. This material has been presented within the IAAI CFITrainer Podcast for September 2022 and on the DCARI training website.
This video provides guidance from the International Association of Arson Investigators on the proper donning and doffing (removal) of personal protective equipment to mitigate hazards at the post-fire scene, focusing on respiratory protection. The video includes recommended PPE ensembles for different situations, demonstrations of proper donning and doffing procedures, and procedures for cleaning, maintaining, and storing PPE.
