Whitemore, Robert. Large Loss Investigation & Management. Ward and Whitemore. Inside Fire. Vol. 5, September 1995.

Abstract: When a large loss fire occurs, many individuals will be required to conduct the investigation. Different types of expertise are needed to adequately investigate the possibilities. To organize the investigation, one individual should be assigned manager of the case. The manager will be responsible for the day to day activities of the investigation and will coordinate all of the information regarding the case. This will assure that nothing is overlooked since all the information passes through one person.

The article outlines all the areas of expertise that may be required. The outline includes the duties of each expert and what that individual should contribute to the case. The experts included in this list are origin and cause investigator, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, HVAC engineer, laboratory technician, toxicologist, fire protection engineer, chemical engineer, and others.
