Program Abstract

Emerging technologies and technologies that have yet to be applied or have been only recently applied to fire investigations may offer fire investigators new investigative tools that can improve the accuracy and completeness of their investigations. Identifying these new developments, determining which technologies to add to your toolbox, and becoming proficient at using these technologies requires constant professional education. In this program, we will look at emerging technologies that fire investigators are integrating into their daily investigative work with great success.
