Technical Lessons in Fire Investigation Training January 17, 2019

Fire investigation is an important part of the Fire Department’s job. Being trained and performing fire investigation helps determine if a fire is accidental or intentional. Fire investigation also allows the Fire Department to collect data on a local level that will be used at the state and national level which helps drive prevention efforts and potentially recalls. Coos Bay Fire Department was fortunate to send one of our Lieutenants to Oregon State Fire Marshals Fire Investigation class this past weekend hosted by the Stayton Fire District. The Lieutenant will now be able to better help other investigators after fires.
