Fire Investigation

No matter the size or severity of the fire, Envista's goal is to provide a high-quality and seamless investigation from the initial site inspection, through the claims process, evidence handling, and any potential subrogation or litigation support necessary.

Having investigated thousands of fires over the years, Envista fire experts can help perform origin and cause investigations to determine where and how the fire truly started. Our CFI, CFEI, and CFVI certified professional fire investigators have been involved with local police departments, fire departments, the ATF, IAAI, and other organizations over the years to become some of the best fire origin and cause experts out there.
