Expert Engineering and Scientifically Based Forensic Fire Analysis
Dedicated to the preservation of life, property and continuity of operations from fire, process hazards and related perils.
FIRE & RISK ENGINEERING was established to provide expert guidance in the forensic analysis of fires, explosions and related incidents; in addition to post-incident evaluation, this includes the ability to provide direction with regard to the taking of pre-emptive action for protection against these types of losses.
Primary expertise in this arena includes scientific and engineering-based knowledge and application of the chemistry, physics and dynamics of fire; the interaction of fire protection, construction and life safety systems; the complexities that affect both conventional and atypical fire behavior and spread; relevant human behavior parametrics that relate to life safety; and the performance of fire protection systems, all of which are dependent variables that are critical to these evaluation. Our solid background, diverse capabilities and responsiveness are especially important for those projects having complex engineering, technological and business risk dynamics.
As a result of engineering-level understanding and qualification in the fields of fire protection, science and dynamics, FIRE & RISK ENGINEERING maintains superior expertise that is essential in the forensic analysis of fires and explosions. FIRE & RISK ENGINEERING also provides innovative and cost-effective solutions to fire, life safety and similar business exposures. Focused expertise, combined with the sound application of engineering principles, is one of our greatest assets.
Of significance, FIRE & RISK ENGINEERINGis neither associated with nor favors any ownership entity, insurance carrier, manufacturer or type/brand of fire protection equipment or methodology; as a result, our opinions are completely objective, relevant, unbiased and scientifically-based. Further, regardless of the size or nature of a project, technical excellence, integrity and reliabilityare the standard
