Forensic Fire City Attorney Expert Witness James McMullen

James McMullen, who served as Executive Director of the National Code Services Association (NCSA), is proud to announce the success of the Forensic Arson Investigation class being taught in San Francisco and Hilo, Hawaii. James served on the NCSA course development committee for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 921 course. The next NFPA 921, Guide for Explosion and Fire Investigations, course will be taught next at Fire Show Reno. Certified Forensic Fire Investigator McMullen states that students successfully completing NCSA’s NFPA 921 course will be certified as Forensic Fire Investigators by NCSA. Chief McMullen recommends that Fire Investigators testifying in court become certified as Forensic Fire Investigators in order to help successfully qualify them by the courts as a Court Qualified Arson Investigator.
