Applied Technical Services fire investigators provide world-class investigation services. Our fire investigators work out of our super-lab facilities and have an exceptional reporting turn around time. Each job consists of a thorough and accurate investigation into the origin and cause of fire and explosion incidents.

Utilizing the new UAVs (drone) technology and accessibility, our FAA Certified Fire Investigators can make many critical observations from high altitude that other Fire Investigators cannot see. This capability allows us to conduct a more multifaceted investigation. Clients can rely on immediate response time for fire investigator personnel.

Investigator Capabilities

Our highly qualified fire investigators execute on-site examinations of vehicles or building systems to find evidence that may provide insight into the origin and cause of fires. Due to the increased likelihood of litigation in matters involving fire investigations, ATS certified fire investigators also provide litigation support and expert testimony, and have done so since 1974 in a court of law. Our certified fire investigators approach each assignment with the attitude that they are likely to be thoroughly cross-examined regarding their findings.

ATS fire investigators are certified by the International Association of Arson Investigators and the National Association of Fire Investigators, and are required to re-certify every five years. Our teams consist of investigators, chemists, and professional engineers.
