About Us

The Greater Cincinnati Regional Arson & Fire Investigators Seminar was established in 1962. The seminar is truly regional, attracting students from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Over the years we have also had students from Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Illinois, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Tennessee.

The seminar provides quality, affordable training in the field of fire cause and origin investigation and arson detection.

The committee that organizes and runs the seminar consists of thirty dedicated professionals that serve without pay. They are fire chiefs, retired fire personnel, fire/arson investigators, fire & police personnel, judges, prosecutors, insurance investigators and Federal agents.

The GCRAFIS Committee gratefully acknowledges the help and assistance from our seminar host, Fire Chief Michael Hauck and the members of the Evendale Fire Department. The assistance provided by Chief Hauck and his department has been a great asset to the success of this seminar.

We would also like to thank the Village Of Evendale and the Evendale Recreation Department for the use of the excellent facilities in which we conduct our seminar.
