Wildfires may seem more natural than manmade. Yet many wildland fires begin at the hands of people. Whether ignited by accident or intent — or by a natural cause such as lightning — wildfire investigations are challenging and require deep scientific skills and understanding to resolve.
Warren engineers are acknowledged fire experts who are not only Certified Fire and Explosion Investigators (CFEI) by the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI), they’re also licensed professional engineers. Our investigators trace the facts, factors and fuels of a blaze from point of origin to spread and overall extent of the loss using systematic investigation tools, peer-reviewed methodologies and observation. We respond to the fire scene quickly and provide prompt feedback to clients on the status of our investigation and our findings.
Additionally, Warren experts are trained and certified through the California Emergency Management Agency Safety Assessment Program, the nationally recognized standard for environmental evaluation and safety. Our investigation experience includes commercial, residential and industrial facilities plus unique components including marine; airports; public water and sewer utilities; cranes; elevators; HVAC; and more.
