NFPA 921 NFPA 921
Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations:
1998 Edition
Published by Natl Fire Protection Assn
Publication date: February 1998

Brent's notes: You absolutely must have this text if you are an arson investigator. It is the most current investigative standard for the field. If you are an arson investigator and you ever get on the stand, you will eat this book. I kid you not. Lawyers lay awake nights thinking of this thing and how to use it against you, so know it thoroughly.

At the 1997 Arnold Markle Symposium, the topic being Fatal Fire/Arson Investigation, Joseph Tuscano, Arson and Fraud Director of the American Re-Insurance Company, again re-emphasized the necessity of being thoroughly aware of this text and its contents if you are an arson investigator, as did others. His comments, as always, were timely, and pragmatic. He also mentioned that if you didn't avail yourself to NFPA 921 in an studious fashion, that opposing counsel would likely avail its contents to one of a number of your available orifices. Examples were given and slides were shown.

  Practical Fire and Arson Investigation
by David R. Redsicker, John J. O'Connor
2nd Edition Hardcover
Published by CRC Pr
Publication date: October 1996

Brent's notes: This is the CRC book on arson investigation. It is the second arson investigator's bible. Get to know it intimately. The first arson investigator's bible, however, is NFPA 95 (see above). If you don't know the whole of NFPA 95, and you get on the witness stand as an arson investigator, it's a defense attorney's dream come true.

The publisher, CRC Press, 08/12/96: Revised, updated, and expanded new edition. PRACTICAL FIRE AND ARSON INVESTIGATION, Second Edition presents specific details on the basic principles and advanced applied techniques for conducting a thorough fire and arson investigation.
