Forensic Restoration Conference

November 15-16, 2018

Cincinnati, Ohio

Forensic restoration is often misconstrued as crime and trauma scene clean up, but it is much more. It is the bridge for restoration contractors to understand how to move from common projects, such as fire and water, to those that are complicated by environmental hazards – regardless of whether those hazards are currently regulated.

The 2018 Forensic Restoration Conference offers a carefully selected mix of topics and presentations that provide essential overview information and opportunities to build detailed technical skills. Learn about potential pandemic organisms that could explode into the international news like Ebola did a few years ago.

Hear an objective view of various decontamination systems for biological contaminants, as well as methods for evaluating project success. Participants will “learn through doing” by thinking through preparations for addressing widespread biological contamination.
