Members meeting held on Tuesday, 9 September 2014 at 1:30pm featuring guest speaker Andrew Strelczenie, Fire Investigation Officer at South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue. Andrew discussed Accident Investigation - the Fire Service Perspective, outlining the process of Fire Investigation (FI) from the initial call through to reaching the Court and/or HM Coroners.


Guest Presentation:
Accident Investigation - the Fire Service Perspective

Andrew Strelczenie, Fire Investigation Officer, SYFR

Andrew gave an extremely informative overview of the fire investigators role and an overview of how they find out how fire started, by looking at the burning and smoke marks along with possible fuel and sources of ignition. Andrew did state that nationally fatal fires are decreasing but within SYFR region it has increased this may be due to financial constraints and poor living standards, an example of this is people not bothering to get gas appliances checked . One of the biggest issues at present is the cheap electrical imports such as the e-cigarette chargers that are causing fires.
