Fire Investigation

A major strength of Corporate Risks is its ability to mobilize an Origin and Cause expert within a few hours of receiving instructions, with the added advantage that a Factual Investigator or Electrical Engineer can also be arranged to attend in tandem.

Corporate Risks Drone

Corporate Risks is constantly looking to advances in technology that enhance our investigation capability. Corporate Risks utilises the use of an aerial drone at various fire scenes. This provides valuable data when interpreting fire development and damage and enables our Investigators to obtain information that would otherwise be inaccessible and dangerous fire scenes.

Corporate Risks is unique in that it has a purpose-built secure exhibit facility, specifically to store and manage exhibits. Corporate Risks has a dedicated Exhibit Manager who assumes full responsibility for the management of all fire exhibits​.
