Together with emergency response crews, we investigate fires suspected to have started from electrical equipment.
Fire investigation and reporting
We work work with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services within the South West Interconnected Network (SWIS) to investigate fires suspected to be of an electrical origin.
To help determine where the fire started, we may need to remove appliances or parts of the electrical installation for further investigation and analysis.
All of our findings are provided to the industry safety regulator, Building and Energy. Non-sensitive information relating to the cause of the fire may be shared by Building and Energy with other government agencies. This is to help map trends and aid in the prevention of future incidents occurring from faulty products or installations.
