NFPA 921 Update Class for 2021 Edition (Tucson)

Where and when:
September 7, 2021
9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Tucson Fire Department Headquarters
300 South Fire Central Place
Tucson, AZ 85701

All registrations will come with the new NFPA 921 - 2021 Edition.

NFPA 921 provides a large base of knowledge and information upon  which a professional fire investigator must know to conduct competent  investigations into fire and 
explosion events. This class will provide  the attendee an overview of the changes, updates, and removal of wording  within the peer-reviewed document released in late 2020.   

The  most recent release contains updates on fire patterns, arc mapping, fire  classification and Ignitable Liquid Detection canines and handlers.   
Arc Mapping has been removed as one of the four sources of information  for origin determination and is now categorized as a fire pattern.  
Chapter 20, Classification of Fire Cause, from the 2017 Edition was  completely deleted. This edition reveals some of the most substantial  changes since the document 
was originally published.  

The 10th  Edition of NFPA 921 and the upcoming 7th Edition of NFPA 1033 bring  about extensive changes on how fires are to be investigated, litigated,  
and the qualifications of the investigator.  A brief discussion will  also cover the upcoming NFPA 1321 Fire Investigation Unit Standard which  is due out for 
public comment this year.
