Thank You

Over the last several training seminars, even as an old hand, I have learned new information concerning fires and how they do what they do.

 

Get started today

Last April, we ran an article submitted by a class of children from a youth center who were learning more about fire safety after two of the children experienced a minor kitchen fire that broke out in their home.  The children were so excited to have the article appear on our website.  The leaders of this group have been working to impress upon them that by reaching out and simply asking others, like CCAI, things can be accomplished that they might not otherwise think they can.

Please keep reading.

From Out of the Abyss...

This week’s article from the past is titled Incendiary Fires Can Be Spotted and was written by Benjamin Horton, CPCU, who was President of the National Adjuster Traing School in Louisville, Kentucky..  It is taken from the Decembe 1968 Vol. XVI No.5 issue.

Incendiary Fires Can Be Spotted 

In the new issue of NFPA Journal®, President Jim Shannon said the Association will focus on the leading causes of home fires, including cooking. "We also need to continue to push hard for home fire sprinklers. That's still a large priority for NFPA, and we plan to work very aggressively in 2014 on our residential sprinkler initiative," he said.

FREMONT INSURANCE COMPANY, Plaintiff-Appellant/Cross-Appellee, and STEVE FOLEY and DIANE FOLEY, d/b/a RAINBOW CREEK FARMS, Appellants/Cross-Appellees, v. GRO-GREEN FARMS, INC., Defendant-Appellee/Cross-Appellant. No. 324075. Court of Appeals of Michigan. March 17, 2016

Before: K. F. KELLY, P.J., and FORT HOOD and BORRELLO, JJ.

UNPUBLISHED PER CURIAM.

Plaintiffs appeal as of right from orders of the trial court granting defendant's motion for summary disposition and motion in limine. On appeal, plaintiffs argue that the trial court erred in granting defendant's summary disposition on plaintiffs' tort claims on the basis of the economic loss doctrine, erred in granting defendant's motion for summary disposition on the basis that plaintiffs failed to provide defendant with reasonable notice pursuant to MCL 440.2607(3)(a), and erred in granting defendant's motion in limine and prohibiting evidence relating to "clinkers." Defendant cross appeals as of right, asserting alternative grounds for affirmance of its motion for summary disposition and motion in limine, and disputing the trial court's denial of its motion to amend its witness list. We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

Expert Witness Testimony

Expert Witness Testimony Class

Presented by:

Steve Huchting - Richard Knapp - Wayne Tyson

In concert with each of our semi-annual training seminars, CCAI sponsors and presents the International Association of Arson Investigators Expert Witness Testimony Class. 

The IAAI Expert Witness Testimony Class has been developed to assist you, the fire investigator, in continuing your education, however it was primarily designed to help complete the requirements needed to obtain your Certified Fire Investigator credentials.

This class is essential for fire investigators who have the experience, education and training, but lack the two courtroom testimonies required to become a CFI.

The EWT was created to educate and train fire investigators in what is expected when preparing for, and actually having, the opportunity to testify in court.

This course is not easy.  Prior to coming to the class, each student is expected to complete several assignments; develop a Curriculum Vitae, complete a photo collage, a diagram and an action plan.

If you are serious about your career and future, make sure you call the office and get your name on the list. This class usually fills up six months to one year in advance.

Wayne Tyson, Richard Knapp and Steve Huchting do an excellent job in selecting the best qualified attorneys to assist in the delivery of the class materials.

So, if your goal is to become a CFI through either CCAI or IAAI and you do not have the necessary mandated two courtroom testimonies, sign up now.
