3/10/19 Education Night


NSWAFI is hosting the next education night on Thursday 3/10/19. The topic is the pros and cons of photoionization detectors (PID) in fire scene examinations. This presentation will include how a PID works, what it is capable of detecting, how reliable this tool is at fire scenes and will discuss whether it actually holds up to these claims. The pros and cons of using PIDs at fire scenes will be discussed: Does it assist the fire investigator, or can it lead into poor investigation practices? How does it compare to other Ignitable Liquid Residues (ILR) analysis tools and procedures?

The presenter is Peter Jeffery who works as a Fire Examiner and Fire Debris Analyst for GKA Investigations Group since 2016. Peter was one of the two-person team responsible for developing the quality manual for GKA Analytical Services, which led to the laboratory being NATA certified. The venue for the night will be Fire + Rescue NSW Head Office at 1 Amarina Avenue Greenacre. The presentation will commence at 18:30 hours.

Hope to see you on the night.
