Identifying the true cause of a fire is paramount to ensuring measures are in place to avoid further incidents. Should a fire cause fatalities, there are not only financial impacts to consider but also possible criminal investigations. The risk of a corporate manslaughter charge being brought against senior executives cannot be ignored.
Stirling Group’s fire and rescue team have had long and distinguished careers in the Fire Service and now provide specialist consultancy and solutions, including fire investigations at any operational location. Our team includes individuals who are recognised as expert witnesses within judicial systems. They are able to mobilise at short notice in order to secure evidence and witness testimony which may otherwise become contaminated. An added advantage of using Stirling Group fire investigators is our ability to produce an independent report free of corporate and social bias.
