Fire Investigation Unit
Under New York State
Law, the cause of all structural fires must be determined. The task of
investigating all fires in Yonkers belongs to the Fire Investigation Unit. Fire
investigation and arson determination is a precise science requiring specialized
training and certification. All
personnel assigned to the unit are trained and certified for this task.
Additionally, individuals assigned to Fire
bring with them a first hand knowledge of fire behavior that can only be gained
from extensive experience in fire suppression.
Since its inception, the Fire Investigation Unit has been successful in
deterring the spread of arson. If you have an arson tip call the
Arson Hotline at 377-7963.
