Fire Investigation Services

fire investigation services
The practice of fire investigation requires a complex combination of skills, experience, and equipment.

At ATS, we have the necessary resources to get the job done in a thorough and timely manner. Our on-scene investigators, chemists, and professional engineers work as an experienced investigative team to determine the cause and responsibility for fires. There are few fields of investigation more likely to result in litigation than the analysis for fires. We approach every assignment with the attitude that we are likely to be thoroughly cross-examined regarding our findings.
