Forensic Fire Science

There has been an evolution in the judicial system whereby a much higher level of scientific proof is

we will encounter in raising the educational and training bar for fire investigators and what suggestions
might you offer? You may safely assume that the judiciary will not be lowering the standard, therefore, we
must meet it.
