Fire Findings Seminars
Investigation of Gas and Electric Appliance Fires
This four-day seminar, which has become “must training” for many public agencies and private firms, is spruced up and better than ever. Jack Sanderson, Fire Findings’ Editor, and Jim Finneran, a colleague and long-time presenter, provide you with in-the-lab analyses of failures and fires caused by gas and electric appliances. Nathan Dwyer, Fire Findings' electrical expert and CFI, covers the nitty-gritty of small appliances in an easy-to-understand way. Lots of class discussion and dozens of informative demonstrations, too.

Investigating Solid Fuel-Burning Appliance Fires
Get in-the-lab training that addresses installation and user issues involving fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, pellet stoves and even gas-log fireplace sets.
