IFO Group offers cost effective fire and explosion investigation support services dedicated to determining the cause and origin of fires and explosions. Our consultants fully understand the litigation process and how the critical supporting roles filled by investigators and expert witnesses can be leveraged to help promote successful outcomes. We are practicing experts in our respective fields and apply a collaborative, team based approach to projects with the proven ability to access other recognized experts and specialized services as required.
We are very experienced with interacting and cooperating with an organization’s internal or external investigative teams and operate with a level of confidence unmatched when managing a multiple-party incident investigation involving government agencies and other third party investigators. We are also highly adept at delivering expertise for privileged investigations with the assistance of retained outside counsel if so desired by a client. Our certified fire and explosion investigators are qualified and well versed in the application of NFPA 921 and NFPA 1033 and can present their opinions clearly and effectively even when confronted by aggressive and hostile cross examination.
IFO Group has a climate controlled inspection laboratory and workshop to facilitate the inspection and documentation of collected evidence and artifacts by IFO Group, clients, or other retained experts. We also maintain onsite secure evidence and artifact storage managed in accordance with ASTM Method E1 459-92 Standard Guide for Physical Evidence Labeling and Related Documentation and can provide short or long term retained storage. In addition, our investigators stand ready to respond to incident scenes throughout North America and internationally in order to provide clients with a trusted representative on the ground to facilitate investigative efforts.
