In this webinar, we will be discussing challenges of performing fire and explosion investigations in extreme cold and how cold temperatures impact the scene, investigator and equipment.
This presentation will provide an overview of how many livestock barn fires occur and the most common causes of these fires. It will also provide some base knowledge on how to detect corrosion in electrical systems, tips on reducing the risk of barn fires and a summary of available resources.
Vicki Hilborn is the Engineering Program Coordinator for the Ontario Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Rural Affairs. She coordinates the Reducing the Risk of Barn Fires Advisory Panel which brings key stakeholders (such as fire department, livestock groups, insurance companies, chief building officials and ministries/agencies) together to discuss how to reduce the number of barn fires in Ontario. She has been with OMAFRA since 2015.

Dear CAFI Members,
In speaking with CAFI members over the past few weeks I’ve noticed that maybe due to the length of my president’s messages, CAFI training news and happenings is not being disseminated. I will thus attempt to make my message brief and to the point in the hopes that our news and events are better communicated to the greater membership.
Live fire exercises are one of the best training tools for teaching fire investigators about fire development, spread, ventilation effects, and fire patterns.
Join us on June 27th for an Upcoming CAFI Webinar on Arc Mapping, one of the four sources of information in Origin Determination with host Join Jason D’Ornellas, Electrical Engineer and Managing Partner at Roar Engineering in a review of the techniques of arc mapping, with case studies, utilizing arc mapping in fire investigations. Date: Wed, June 27, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT - REGISTER
