We respond to structure fires, car fires, and explosion incidents within Butler County when requested by the Fire Chiefs. We average about 25 call outs per year. We work with the local jurisdiction and local police jurisdiction determining cause and origin of fire located within Butler County. Our Team members all must have at minimum a 40-hour Basic Fire Investigation Class.

There credentials are determined by professional organizations. These organizations are International Association of Arson Investigators and National Association of Arson Investigators.
