Scientific Protocols for Fire Investigation, Second Edition

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1439875995

Category: Law

Page: 646

View: 906

Knowledge of the science behind fires is critical to understanding a fire’s cause and successfully presenting that determination to the authorities or in litigation. Now in its second edition, Scientific Protocols for Fire Investigation focuses on the practical application of scientific principles to determine the causes of fires. Uniquely qualified with years of experience in on-site investigations, lab analyses, and courtroom presentation, the author provides a resource that is unparalleled in depth and focus. The book explores: The history of fire investigation and the basic chemistry and physics of fire The science of fire dynamics—how things burn and how they interact with their surroundings while doing so Practical procedures for conducting fire scene inspections Laboratory examination of fire debris to test for the presence of ignitable liquid residues and for potential ignition sources Relevant scientific principles as applied to 30 actual fires The evolution of the mythology of arson investigation The common root causes of errors in fire investigation The final chapter discusses the professional practice of fire investigation. It examines quality assurance, business practices, and the fundamentals of being an expert witness, with advice for giving testimony in depositions and at trial. Other highlights of the second edition include new and expanded discussions on novel training methods, first assumptions, computer fire modeling, low voltage ignition sources, the questionable validity of some origin determinations, and recent changes in NFPA 921. Thorough and accessible, this volume not only provides the practical information necessary to conduct an effective inquiry but also offers insight into the science, history, and theory behind what makes fire investigation a multi-faceted profession. John Lentini discusses the book in a video on the CRC Press YouTube Channel.

Kirk's Fire Investigation

It is hard to believe that it has now been 20 years since I took over responsibility for what was thenFire Investigationby Dr. Paul Kirk. So many years have passed that a whole new generation of fire investigators are now practicing. So many have asked "Why is it calledKirk's Fire Investigation?" that it is clear they are not aware of Prof. Kirk's contribution to the discipline. Paul L. Kirk was a professor of biochemistry and criminalistics at the University of California at Berkeley, but it was his specialty of microchemistry that focused his attention on physical evidence and its analysis. Prof. Kirk was part of the Manhattan Project (where separation and identification of trace quantities of particular chemicals was a critical step in developing the atomic bomb). After the war, he focused on analytical chemistry as an adjunct to criminal investigation. He was the professor in charge of the criminalistics program at Berkeley until his death in 1970, and launched the careers of many criminalists who now practice around the world. He wrote the landmark text,Crime Investigation,in 1953 and maintained a private criminalistics consulting practice. It was this practice that led to his involvement in fire and arson investigation, where he was consulted in a wide variety of fire and explosion cases. He publishedFire Investigationin 1969 as the first textbook on fire investigation written by a scientist rather than a field investigator. It became a standard reference and was still in print some 11 years after his death. In honor of his pioneering work in bringing science to fire investigation, his name is included in the title, and the spirit, of this text. His concern with using science to solve the puzzles of fire and explosion presaged the current emphasis on using the scientific method to investigate fires by more than 30 years. It is clear that good, knowledgeable investigators have been using that approach for years, even if they were not aware of it. The last 15 years have seen a dramatic improvement in the frequency and quality of interactions between fire investigators, fire scientists, and engineers involved in fire safety and fire protection. The intuitive extrapolation or interpolation of data to explain fire development has been standard practice among fire investigators and it has been faulty far too often. The integration of the information, knowledge, and experience of fire engineers and those scientists involved in the chemistry and physics of fire development into fire investigation has proceeded along many paths—personal, educational, and professional—and on an international basis. Fire engineers are now involved directly in investigations and also teach investigators how to apply engineering principles. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 921Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigationshas focused the attention of investigators and the legal profession on the scientific principles behind investigation. This author was involved with NFPA 921 from 1990 to 1999, and this edition reflects a closer parallel between practices and information in both sources that can only enhance the accuracy and reliability of all investigations. Thanks to the fire engineers and scientists involved, we have a better understanding of the dynamics of ignition, flame spread, and room fire growth than ever before. This edition contains new material on those critical subjects. Today's investigators are being held to a higher standard of professional practice than previously. It is no longer adequate to claim expertise based on years of experience alone. A professional must demonstrate that what he or she is doing follows the practices and the knowledge base of the relevant professional community. That knowledge and practice is based on texts such as this one and NFPA 921, which are continuously reviewed and revised to reflect the most current knowledge. The revisions in this edition follow the same path as those for previous ones and include many new photographs and case examples. There is revised material on fire dynamics and electrical fire causation, supported by new color photographs. The text reflects an international information base as offered by fire and explosion investigators, scientists, and engineers from all over the world. It is offered in the hope that it will augment the knowledge of investigators everywhere and help them find the right answers for the right reasons. J.D. DeHaan, PhD, FABC, FSSDip July 2001

Originally written by a team of Certified Protection Professionals (CPPs), Anthony DiSalvatore gives valuable updates to The Complete Guide for CPP Examination Preparation. This new edition contains an overview of the fundamental concepts and practices of security management while offering important insights into the CPP exam.

It presents a practical approach drawn from decades of combined experience shared by the authors, prepares the reader for the CPP exam, and walks them through the certification process. This edition gives revised and updated treatment of every subject in the CPP exam, encourages and outlines a three-part program for you to follow, and includes sample questions at the end of each area of study. Although these are not questions that appear on the actual exam, they convey the principles and concepts that the exam emphasizes and are valuable in determining if you have mastered the information. The book also includes a security survey that covers all facets of external and internal security, as well as fire prevention. The Complete Guide for CPP Examination Preparation, Second Edition allows you to move steadily forward along your path to achieving one of the most highly regarded certifications in the security industry.
