About NEFCO Fire Investigations
NEFCO is the most progressive fire investigation company serving over half of the United States. NEFCO now services the entire Northeast region, Mid-Atlantic region, Southeast region and most of the Midwest. The company was established and founded in 1993 by James R. Eddy.
Continuing with our tradition, NEFCO has now grown to having more than 70 investigators, all of which are W2 employees, who average over 20 years of experience in either fire or police service, or both. NEFCO has investigators that are court-qualified experts in their field; they are well versed in NFPA 921 and have extensive court experience. We offer comprehensive investigations ranging from small buildings, vehicles, and heavy equipment to large commercial properties. Our experience in fire investigations, processing fire scenes, testing of evidence, and court experience has resulted in our clients recovering millions of dollars.
In addition to our expert fire investigators, we offer electrical engineers who perform vital scene examinations as well as destructive and non-destructive testing, which completes the origin and cause investigation. Our engineering department offers on-site examination that may later continue with destructive testing in our state-of-the-art laboratory with interested parties and attorneys.
Conveniently located off the Spaulding Turnpike in Rochester, New Hampshire, our 1600-foot lab facility has all of the equipment you would expect to have in order to conduct evidence examinations. We have conducted evidence examinations with as few as two and as many as 20 experts, including their associated legal counsel and insurance company representatives. Being one of the few companies in New England, New York, or New Jersey with digital X-ray capabilities allows us to complete destructive and non-destructive examinations with little wasted time waiting for other laboratories to accommodate those requests.
We have hosted live fire experiments on HVAC and other systems using our on-site cylindered natural gas and quick-disconnect propane, as well as having conducted live burn experiments underneath the ventilation hood.
