  • In this study, strengths related with fire investigation of fire stations are analyzed and methods for the capacity building of their fire cause investigation are suggested. The methods for capacity building of fire cause investigation suggested are focused on using potential and strengths of current fire fighting and enhancing internal capacity rather than reinforcing investigation personnel, organization, and equipment and ensuring investigation power. The methods suggested in this study are as follows. 1) Because fire investigation results are the basis of fire administration, fire marshals should change their awareness of the need of fire investigation; 2) A fire investigation system should be established to ensure statements of people concerned systematically; 3) A substantial system of fire cause investigation should be established to investigate fire scenes more than twice; 4) A substantial system of fire cause investigation should be established to use such materials as CCTV; 5) Extinguishing should be made in consideration of fire cause investigation and a scene preservation system after extinguishing should be established; 6) A fire investigation system should be established in connection with 119 first-aid and rescue teams and 7) Steps to raise the morale of fire investigation staff should be taken.

  • The purposes of fire investigation are to identify and analyze the causes of fire and, using the results in promoting fire fighting policies, ultimately to prevent fires caused by similar causes and to protect people's life and properties from fire. However, although the patterns of fire are getting more diverse and complicated with the rapid development of industry, complicated with the rapid development of industry, fire fighting organizations are continuing traditional superficial fire investigation without operating a fire investigation department for the reason of insufficient manpower, equipment and budget, losing public confidence. Thus, the present study purposed to propose plans to improve the technicality of fire investigation and win public confidence in fire investigation. First, the technicality of fire investigation should be improved by operating a department and personnel exclusively for fire investigation. Second, fire investigation should be more scientific and precise using high tech fire investigation equipment. Lastly, responsible fire fighting administration should be realized through statistical analysis of the causes of fire and computerization. The results of this study are expected to contribute to the safety and security of our society.

And considering fore criminal investigation, since the police lacking in specialty on fire take exclusive charge of fire criminal investigation upon general investigation, it is difficult to investigate fire criminal effectively. Finally deficiency in fire investigation operates as very big blind-spot in fire safety having important axis in social safely; the loss is shifted on nation's shoulder. To solve those problems, legal, institutional, operational preparation is urgent.

  • To foster fire investigation professionals and expand career opportunities for graduates of fire science majors, it is extremely important to expand and reorganize courses which are related to fire investigation. Only 30 percent of universities have fire investigation related courses, and the courses only offer theoretical materials. As a result, it has a great limitation to teach essential knowledge which is required at a fire scene. This study suggests to classify fire investigation-related-courses in to fire investigation course and fire identification course. In addition, the study proposes ways to standardize curricula which enables students to acquire Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator (CFEI).
