About The Event

QAFI presents a full day live burn and seminar in Brisbane on Thursday 24th of October 2019. The event will include live burn demonstrations (weather permitting), pre-burned room examinations and theories of fire scene investigations. Live burns are conducted by QAFI every two years, and this is a rare opportunity for those interested or involved in fire investigations.

The seminar will be of benefit to those involved in fire investigation and activities which follow these investigations including police, fire service, government officials, investigators, insurance and claims personnel, environmental surveyors and legal representatives. The seminar component will look at battery installation guidelines, how batteries operate and why they fail, including solar, car, mobile phone and household products.

Parking is available on-site and details will be provided with registration confirmation.
