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.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology is rapidly becoming a preferred choice for battery power across all segments of society. This relatively new technology offers significant improvements in energy and power density over conventional battery technologies, such as alkaline and NiCad. In transportation vehicle applications, Li-ion batteries deliver more energy and power with less weight and maintenance than conventional batteries, making them a desirable choice of manufacturers.
Our nation’s expectation for reliable, uninterrupted electrical power to fuel all aspects of life — our business commerce, our homes, our hospitals,etc.— has escalated to such a highdegree of confidence that we don’t give it a second thought. A large majority of the world’s population expects this vital necessity as a self-sufficient commodity, however invaluable it may be. Yet, when we examine the far reaching impact of the grid on the sustainability of our critical infrastructure we realize that this asset is far too valuable to settle for minimal security provisions.
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.
