Jack Ward Fire Consultants has a broad range of experience in managing complex fire and explosion investigations. We are equipped to provide 24/7 support with our strong leadership, experienced fire and explosion professionals and support staff.  Our goal is to provide our clients with expert advice, leadership skills and guidance to address any problem. The coordination of every aspect of the process is essential. Without capable leadership to manage a catastrophic incident, the result will likely lead to unnecessary and costly delays. Proper scene management is not a luxury but a necessity.
