The L-Tron team has returned from the second annual International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Technology Summit, which was held at the Irving Convention Center in Texas earlier this month. The Summit attracted fire service and IT professionals from all over the country, as well as many industry-leading technology companies. The L-Tron team attended for the first time this year, showcasing its patented OSCR360 System for in-house firefighter training, emergency preplanning, fire investigation, and crash documentation.
The OSCR360 team will attend the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) 2023 Technology Summit from December 5-7, 2023 in Irving, TX.
The IAFC Technology Summit will take place at the Irving Convention Center and focuses on how to practically implement technology to benefit firefighter safety and decision-making processes. Stop by booth 127 to meet OSCR and the team!
When it comes to fire service professionals, unsafe structures and environments continuously pose a risk to their health, safety, and well-being.
Firefighters are in danger while they work to extinguish each blaze and rescue victims who may be trapped inside. The hazmat team is vulnerable when responding to chemical spills and explosions. The search and rescue team enters precarious situations that no one else has the capability to handle. Investigators put themselves at risk when they are exposed to environmental conditions and the structural damage that remains after the emergency response team has cleared the scene.
See how OSCR360 can help with accessing unsafe structures and training for these scenarios.
While on-site tactical training is certainly an important component of a well-rounded training regimen, these types of trainings tend to be costly, time-consuming, and impractical to achieve on a frequent basis.
OSCR360 is a multi-use tool for fire departments of all sizes that allows firefighters and investigators the unique opportunity for limitless in-house training.

The ultimate goal of a fire investigator is to determine the fire’s origin and cause. The “point of origin” is the precise location where a fire was ignited, and the “cause” refers to the exact source(s) of the flame. Causation forensics, or the science behind determining the where, how and why a fire occurred, is important for many reasons. Discover more here:
Upon arrival to a fire scene, a fire investigator must immediately assess the situation and begin a systematic and deliberate investigation – particularly if there is a possibility that the fire was intentional. If an arson case is to have any chance of being successfully prosecuted down the road, every “i” must be dotted and every “t” crossed during the investigation. When arson is suspected, the investigator is ultimately responsible for identifying and collecting evidence to support proof of incendiarism, proof of opportunity, proof of motive and connecting the evidence.
