RMI was pleased to participate and co-sponsor “Burn it – to Learn it” - a day long information packed fire investigation and insurance subrogation/adjuster seminar.

The event featured a morning classroom program addressing legal and insurance issues.  The program was held at the Norwich Township and Fire Department state-of-the-art training facility. A live burn was held in the afternoon at the adjacent Franklin County Fairgrounds. The program was attended by approximatey150 representatives of the insurance industry (adjusters, subrogation units and in-house counsel), agents, property managers and local fire officials.

The classroom portion featured insurance issues including proper and compliant notice, roles and duties of the front line adjuster & subrogation unit, scene preservation, avoidance of bad faith claims, impacted third parties, losses involving injuries and proper damage documentation.

RMI partner David Matejczyk was a presenter on the insurance and legal issues from a fire loss.

Tom Bensen, CFI, CFEI, CVFI of Bensen Fire & Safety Consulting provided an analysis of identification of fire origin, spread and responsibility. Representatives of Thompson Building Associates – ResQ24 discussed proper securing of loss sites to prevent spoliation and liability issues. The morning program featured a discussion among industry personnel in attendance on the proper and safe mechanics of a fire investigation – from loss notice until release of the scene for restoration.

After a barbecue lunch the program moved to the adjacent Franklin County Fairgrounds, where sponsors Thompson Building with materials from Holmes Lumber and Lifestyle Floring had prepared two pods for a live burn.

The live burn was coordinated by Bensen Fire & Safety with the assistance of the Norwich Township Fire Department.

Following extinguishment of the fires by the Norwich Fire Department, the burn patterns and other issues involved in a fire loss origin and cause determination were explored.

RMI would like to thank all involved for their participation in this successful event, and especially Michelle Hoffman of Thompson Building Associates.
