PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Spring 2019
From the desk of the President
Ladies and gentlemen we as professional fire investigators, engineers, law enforcement and insurance representatives are required to provide our expertise and knowledge in the pursuit of identifying the origin and cause of fires and fire related incidents. The knowledge we collectively have obtained and the experience we share should be used to solve and answer the how, where, what and why of fire investigations. Our experience, knowledge and expertise should not come into question when we put forth our opinions and conclusions.
Active membership in our organization, including attending, participating, and organizing various training sessions can build your knowledge, expertise and add to your overall experience recognized inside the fire investigation community. Your continued participation in the training programs provided by the PAAI will expand your professional network and make you stand out as an expert in the field of fire investigations.
The 2019 Jack Christmas training weekend was a great success. Over 50 attendees participated in the training program. The next training scheduled for June 17-19, 2019 will be another opportunity for every member to attend and participate in a valuable training experience. Please see the flyer and information located on the PAAI website.
I encourage all of you to seriously consider the value in training and the experiences shared at the seminars. I hope to see all of you at the June conference.
Richard W. Wunderley, PE, CFEI
Senior Electrical Engineer
