Fire Investigation for DoD (Military) Installations/Bases
This question is just being directed at other fire personnel who work at U.S military installations (Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard) conus and around the world:
As for fire investigation on your installations, who or what agency conducts the investigations? Is it CID, OSI, the fire department, or do you bring in an outside agency?
What is the scope of the investigations? C & O only, or do you go more in depth? If C & O only, do you then turn in over to another agency if evidence found suggests incendiary in nature?
I know on some installations, the fire department conducts their own investigation. In some regards the trend appears to be heading in that direction, but I'm trying to get a more accurate number of those that do Vs. those that don't.
