Project description:Fire investigation is among the most complex tasks in the area of fire protection. The results of fire investigation are applied in the development, or amendment of existing legislation, technical standards, as well as industrial regulations to reduce the number of fires, but especially for reducing the number of killed and injured persons and the amount of property damage. In addition, the correct determination of the cause of fire may represent a fine line between justice and judicial error. Despite this importance of fire investigation, in Slovak Republic there is currently no accredited university degree program focused on fire investigation. Similarly, there is no accredited lifelong learning program of training in this area. As a result, almost exclusively former members of the Fire and Rescue Department are hired to the position of fire investigator in the commercial sector (mainly insurance companies and companies with high fire risk), despite the fact, that the legislation allows to recruit also graduate of high school without experience. The main objective of this project is to develop a national training center for fire investigation. National Training Center will consist of laboratory for reconstruction of fires in laboratory scale (laboratory was developed in project KEGA in the previous period), library (part was created in KEGA in the previous period, partly from other projects and the completion of the proposed project) and virtual laboratory for identification of causes of fires (will be built from the proposed project).
