Burnette, Guy E., Ettling, Bruce V. NFPA 921: Now We're Talking. National Fire & Arson Report. Vol. 13, No. 3 (September 1995), p 1+.

Abstract: This article offers a dialogue between the authors, both of whom are responding to the National Fire & Arson Report's previously published articles on NFPA 921.

Bruce Ettling, a member of the NFPA 921 committee, but responding personally, addressed Guy Burnette's article in which specific points of the NFPA 921 were raised and questioned. He revisits several of these points, sharing his own experience to support their inclusion in the guide. He concludes by stating that testimony is often inherently unreliable and that NFPA 921 does not make it more so. It is therefore reasonable to take advantage of the growing number of reliable methodologies which will support investigative conclusions. Guy Burnette responds accordingly, respectfully disagreeing with the mandate of the NFPA 921 and concluding that the real issue is not the way in which investigators perform their responsibilities, but rather, the challenge presented to investigators by the uncertainty which NFPA 921 has introduced to the field.
