FIS Students Collaboration and Community

WVU’s FIS Department wishes to thank Mark Lambert (Director of WVU Extension Fire Service) and his firefighters for hosting some controlled burns at the WV State Fire Academy at the end of the spring 2022 semester. Students in Prof. Edwards’ Crime Scene Investigation II class (FIS 402) processed the scenes and collected fire debris samples in special evidence cans. Students in Prof. Jackson’s Arson and Explosives Analysis class (FIS 451) later analyzed the debris samples to test for the presence of ignitable liquids. Such educational and enriching experiences help elevate WVU’s FIS program from our peers.
