The members of the cause and origin team are a collective group of firefighters that have completed extensive hours of classroom training and hands on training to determine the cause of a fire.  Under state law, it is the responsibility of the Fire Chief to determine the cause of a fire, therefore, many utilize the members selected by the County of Emergency Services to investigate fires and file the report with New York State Office of Fire Prevention.
