Following a fire or system failure that results in legal proceedings, knowing for certain the root cause will enable you to protect lives and property going forward.

Having a fire protection expert review an incident and provide supporting testimony during litigation can be crucial. With expertise in fire science, fire protection system design, building codes and life safety standards, our working fire protection engineers provide the investigation, comparative research, consultation, trial preparation and expert testimony you require for your legal proceedings. We prioritize investing in the training and education of our team to ensure they are always on the cutting edge of fire science.

Poole Fire Protection is one of a small number of firms that specializes in fire protection and life safety litigation support with a reputable, influential staff of actual working fire protection engineers who are capable of clearly conveying their findings to a jury. Many of those requiring legal testimony have returned to Poole Fire Protection multiple times because of our proven approach developed over decades of experience and participation in building and fire code development.

ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION

The process of recreating an incident to investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding it requires a detailed approach to research and a thorough understanding of required standards. Our knowledge and education allow us to utilize computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling tools and software to analyze fire/smoke growth and spread to evaluate system activation, control and multiple facets of egress.

CRISIS & EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

In an emergency, every second counts. An important aspect of many cases is the evaluation of response time and responder skill levels.

FORENSIC ANALYSIS

It is important to understand how a system actually works, versus how it is designed to work. Evaluating how something is designed and installed often leads to answers regarding how well the system operates. This allows us to troubleshoot where a failure may take place and navigate a solution before it happens, or understand why the failure actually happened.

FIELD CHANGE CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Poole Fire Protection understands both the performance-based and prescriptive code criteria associated with fire protection systems and their related equipment. Our team of specialists will facilitate field changes and resolve fire protection and life safety code issues that often arise during construction. These resolutions can be identified during a pre-inspection walk through or during resolution meetings with the Authority Having Jurisdiction.

FIRES & EXPLOSIONS

Our expert Fire Protection Engineers understand the science behind how a fire ignites, grows and sustains itself. This expertise is a vital part of investigating structural and vehicle fires.

INSURANCE CLAIMS ASSISTANCE

Consumers view insurance as a way to transfer risks. Insurers oftentimes look for ways to help their clients mitigate risk. Our team will help you balance those responsibilities and expectations to enable both sides to secure equitable and reasonable results.

THIRD PARTY PLAN REVIEW AND AHJ COORDINATION

Poole Fire Protection's expertise is recognized by building and fire code authorities throughout the United States. Our third-party reviews include compliance assessment of prepared plans and drawings, potential alternatives and performance-based designs. This comprehensive, objective approach assists clients when changes must be coordinated with the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
