Motor Vehicle Fire & Theft Investigations
The Michigan Arson Prevention Committee offers several training opportunities for motor vehicle fires and theft investigations. Classes consist of both classroom, live burn and scene processing. These classes are conducted with the assistance of expert investigators and automotive engineers who are responsible for vehicle investigations.
This 8 hr. program is conducted at a salvage yard. The vehicles are donated and burned demonstrating several accidental and intentionally set fires. Students get to observe how the vehicles burn and then examine them following extinguishment.
