Read the article in the Forensic Science International her and learn more about the possible utilisation of ultraviolet light at fire scenes and subsequent recommendations for procedures. Highligts:

• UV light enhances the fire sampling at finding ignitable liquids at the fire scene.

The great EAFS conference 2018 was held in Lyon and now all the presentations are available on line. You will find them here

Next EAFS conference will be in Stockholm, Sweden in 2021. So there is still some time to prepare a presentation of new research/ case studies. Or just listen to the newest knowledge in our field. 

The team of fire investigators are reading the tactical information and setting up an investigation strategy before entering the fire scene.
