Fire Investigators’ Sacred Texts: NFPA 1033 and NFPA 921

What are NFPA 1033 and NFPA 921?

NFPA 1033 and NFPA 921 are two fancy-sounding standards that were published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Basically, this organization is all about keeping people safe and preventing fires by coming up with codes and standards that people should follow.

NFPA 1033 is all about making sure that fire investigators have the right qualifications and training to do their jobs well. It sets out some guidelines for the minimum education, training, and experience that fire investigators should have to be able to conduct fire investigations. It also tells fire investigators how they should carry out their investigations and document their findings.

NFPA 921, on the other hand, is all about how to investigate fires and explosions. This standard provides guidance for how fire investigators should collect and analyze evidence, how to figure out where the fire started and what caused it, and how to document the investigation findings. It also provides guidance on how to evaluate the fire scene and identify potential sources of ignition and acceleration.

Overall, these standards are pretty important because they provide fire investigators with some guidelines and best practices that they can use to do their jobs well and conduct thorough and effective fire investigations.
