An alarm system can be a very helpful tool when investigating a claim. Security systems, fire systems, and environmental control alarms can be used as “black boxes” to help investigators. Our experts can determine why an alarm failed and uncover details that may be essential in the resolution of a claim. They can determine if a system was tampered with, if it was armed and when, whether it was disarmed, the path of a fire, and who was in the building (and may have had opportunity to disarm the system). Having a system examined by an expert immediately after an incident can provide key details that would otherwise remain uncovered.
