Fellow NCIAAI Members,

Your Board has had two virtual meetings. We posted changes to the By-laws on the web site over a month ago. The changes would allow all members to vote for officers and board on line prior to the annual meeting. Hopefully you have reviewed them.

Because of the stay home order, many agencies are not permitted to travel and we would not be allowed to hold a large meeting to discuss the changes. As a result we are going to deal with the changes virtually. Here is the planned schedule:

June 3-12 Members are encouraged to review the proposed changes

June 15-19 Members may submit comments and questions to the Technology Committee at brogerscfi@gmail.com. The Committee members        are Wayne DeLancey, Tommy Batson, Bill Rogers and Mack Salley.

June 20 you will receive a message from Wild Apricot that will have a ballot. The system will allow you to cast your vote. 

June 20-25 voting will be open to the membership. 

The link to the changes is below:

Fire Investigator Health and Safety Best Practices

To the Chapter:

I hope all is well with you and your family during these most unique times.  I wanted to share a document with the Chapter that was recently approved and released by the IAAI.  The document is Fire Investigator Health and Safety Best Practices.  It was released on May 4th, 2020, and is available in the IAAI’s member section.  A copy of the document is also attached in a pdf. form for those not able to access the international site.  This document is an excellent resource for anyone setting up a fire investigation unit, maintaining a unit, or anyone needing documentation for their chain-of-command supporting a training/equipment/personnel request.  This document details specifics regarding employers, training, vehicles, and individual investigators as well as appendices with information on  respiratory protection and decontamination.  Also included in a Reference section at the end that lists the research documents noted in support of their findings which would also be valuable sources of information if needed.  Be safe!
