  • What climate change means to investigators

  • Spontaneous combustion

  • A perspective on Global High Risk insurance

  • Modern alarm technologies

  • Fire engineering


NZAFI are also calling for any case studies where scientific testing has been used to demonstrate or prove a hypothesis.

These presentations are not to have been previously presented at another conference nor published in a fire magazine or relevant publication. A precise of the presentation is to be sent to admin@nzafi.org.nz by no later than 15 December 2019.
