Your company's adjusters, subrogation units, managers and in-house counsel are invited to attend "Burn it – to Learn it!" Please feel free to forward this to others in your organization who might desire to attend.

Classroom training followed by live burn and analysis....
From the first notice of a fire loss to the conclusion of the scene examination, this program addresses insurance adjustment and subrogation issues. A topic loaded classroom program presented by RMI and Bensen Fire & Safety Consulting in the morning will move to a live burn of two pods – applying the insurance, investigative and legal issues to a live fire. The Norwich Fire Department will extinguish the live burns followed by an analysis of the fire patterns and causation determination.
Topics covered include:
-Roles and duties of the front line adjuster, subrogation unit and counsel.
-The fine line between mitigation of damages and spoliation.
-Avoiding bad faith claims and potential sanctions from the fire loss.
-Safety issues as to adjusters, investigators and all involved.
-Legal issues involving the insured, injuries from the fire, renters and impacted third parties.
-Control and eventual release of the scene.
-Proper damage documentation (adjuster tips for avoiding later deposition challenges).
