FIAI President’s Welcome 2020
I am honoured to take up post of President at a time when the FIAI is gaining strength, not only in terms of increasing membership but also in the range of potential benefits that membership brings. I therefore look forward to a busy and rewarding year as your president.
The 2019 Annual Training Conference has once again demonstrated the high quality of interest both in terms of audience and of presenters regarding Fire Investigation in Ireland. The committee is now eleven strong and includes a website liaison officer. It is the committees objective to harness the interest demonstrated at the 2019 ATC and push fire investigation into a wider audience by demonstrating the value for all agencies involved in fire safety, response and in its investigation both private and public of the potential benefits of having qualified, knowledgeable individuals, capturing and sharing the learning gained from these events.
