Investigate Fire Cause with Greater Accuracy

FARO solutions capture every detail for fire investigation reports.
Fire investigators know the aftermath of a fire is extremely unsafe. Toxic fumes and materials may linger, and the scene may be dark, wet and unstable. When minutes count, precision measurement matters. Capturing all the evidence accurately and as quickly as possible limits personnel exposure and evidence contamination. FARO laser scanners enable investigators to collect every detail of even the most inhospitable scenes.

Using FARO’s laser scanning solution is like having an entire encyclopedia of data about the scene, rather than just having short, handwritten notes. Any detail can quickly be accessed and viewed, rather than having to sort through multiple photographs or search in crime scene video.
