This webinar will take a closer look fire lossÂ from an environmental prospective. We will discuss both wildfire and structural fire claims and ..
discuss the different approaches for each type of loss. We will also take an in-depth look at the current analytical methods available to investigators to determine the types and concentrations of combustion related contaminants found in a building after a fire. Finally, we will discuss the interpretation of the analytical data and provide a brief discussion of corrective actions that can be used to remove the contaminants. Several case studies will be included in the webinar to better illustrate to the audience how to anticipate the types of contaminants present, develop a sampling plan, interpret analytical data and develop a clean-up plan. While fire damage to buildings is nothing new, some of the tools and evaluation techniques currently available for identifying environmental contaminants are. Attendees of this webinar will be able to better understand and characterize a fire based on the combustion temperature and fuels present to determine the most likely contaminants present in a building.
