VIDEO: The Bettendorf Fire Department hosted a live-fire investigation training event with the aim of enhancing fire response and recovery procedures within the local community, covering every aspect in responding to a fire, starting from the initial emergency response all the way through to the final restoration phase. The training session brought together a wide array of experts ranging from first responders, fire investigators, restoration specialists, insurance adjusters, and even attorneys. The event offered everyone involved in fire-related incidents a unique opportunity to collaborate, share insights, and network effectively.
“A lot of times, we only see each other at these stressful times on the scene of a fire, or in the aftermath of a fire,” said Greg Marty, Fire Consultant with Fire Tech Investigations.
