In August 2003, during the NAFI/NFPA National Fire, Arson, and Explosion Investigation Training Program in Sarasota, Florida, a small group of dedicated fire investigation educators met at the NAFI international offices. Their purpose was to discuss and ultimately to set in motion a new concept in fire investigation education. This innovation became the International Symposia on Fire Investigation Science and Technology (ISFI)..
It is not mere coincidence that seven of these original group participants, are members of the NFPA Technical Committees on Fire Investigations (NFPA 921) and/or Fire Investigator Professional Qualifications (NFPA 1033). Since 1985 the partnership between the NFPA and NAFI has been dedicated to and striving for the betterment of fire investigation, worldwide.
