Fire investigations


interFIRE VR is a revolutionary virtual reality fire investigation training program available to the fire service, law enforcement and the insurance industry.

NFPA´s Fire Investigations division collects, analyzes, and reports detailed fire experience data through on-site investigations of technical or educational significance. Reports may take the form full reports, preliminary/summary reports; alert bulletins; or journal articles.

Areas documented during the course of the investigations include details of fire ignition, growth, and development; contributions of building construction, interior finish and furnishings; fire detection and suppression scenarios; performance of structures exposed to the fire; smoke movement and control; human reaction (response) and evacuation; fire fighting and rescue; fire propagation as a function of human reaction time; and the extent of life loss, injury and property damage.

Most NFPA fire investigation reports are free for NFPA members. Non-members may purchase copies of the reports for $30 each. Call +1 617 984-7445 or e-mail NFPA's Morgan Technical Library.
