Welcome to the Miami Valley Fire Investigators Association Webpage

The Miami Valley Fire Investigators Association is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) training organization. The primary goal of our organization is to enhance the training of our members and to create opportunities for networking and sharing resources.  The group was formed in the mid 1980's after a regional group of investigators began looking for fire investigation training opportunities.

Over the years the group's membership has fluctuated, but the mission has remained the same, to educate our members.

Every two years, The Miami Valley Fire Investigators Association, offers an "Advanced Arson Seminar" and at the end of the seminar students attending the seminar have the opportunity to become nationally certified as a "Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator (CFEI)" Through (NAFI) The National Association of Fire Investigators.

The group meets Bi-Monthly at rotating locations  (North) Huber Heights Fire Headquarters (Central) Sinclair Community College Building 20, (South) Miami Township Fire Division, Montgomery County.
