Professional Fire Investigation Training

Contact UsAbout Us

The area of Fire Investigation within Fire and Rescue Services and other Emergency Response Services can be quite complex. National Guidance, trends and law can change and those who have their FI personnel need to ensure they are kept up=to-date with as much current practice as possible.

Our fire investigation programmes have been designed and developed in partnership with Teesside University and County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service.

The programmes are designed around the ethos of workforce development allowing operational staff to learn, develop and implement new fire investigation skills and knowledge in the workplace. It is a mix of theoretical study, research, critical evaluation and practical exercises.

The course’s leadership team includes academics and practitioners, in addition to external speakers from a broad range of sciences and operational disciplines.

Vital Fire Solutions offers several opportunities to Emergency Response organisations, supporting their Fire Investigation objectives.

These include

  • Section audits – let us provide a gap analysis of your current FI Team structure, systems and processes, ensuring everything is in line with National Guidance and there are enough resources available to cope with whatever circumstance may arise.
  • CPD sessions – we can offer quarterly sessions, local to you and your surrounding Emergency Response Services, updating you on key practices and topics, bringing insight into key areas which you may encounter in the future
