2016 Fire Demonstration & Educational Seminar
On September 29, 2016 we held our 3rd annual fire class for insurance professionals. We hold the class at our very own facility and we conduct live burns inside a house we own on our campus.
Each year we have the Pekin Fire Department control the burns. They are under the direction of FireTech Investigation & Consulting.
The day starts off with breakfast, then leads into some classroom discussion conducted by FireTech. Then the class is lead outside to watch some live burns inside the house. We set up these rooms to be very lifelike with furniture and appliances. The idea is for the insurance professionals to see what a small fire can affect. After a few burns are conducted inside the house we also set fire to a couple cars. We then provide the class with lunch and give them a chance to walk through the house and see the aftermath of the burns. The class will then finish with some classroom discussion.
