The purpose of the Fire Loss Specialist Course presented by the Insurance Committee for Arson Control (ICAC) is to serve as a compendium of general information insurers may wish to use as part of the development of their own individual claims-handling procedures; however, ICAC neither sets forth any particular practice or policy as a recommendation or best practice nor does it represent this course to be an authoritative compilation of widely followed procedures.
The Fire Loss Specialist Course should be viewed as one of many possible sources of information that an individual insurer may wish to reference and evaluate in establishing corporate procedures. This approach reflects the philosophy behind the Insurance Committee for Arson Control (ICAC). In keeping with that philosophy, any views, positions, or interpretations of the comments expressed herein are those of the contributing author and are not necessarily those of ICAC or any member of ICAC.

Therefore, no responsibility is assumed by any of the contributing faculty or ICAC for the accuracy, appropriateness, or timeliness of any information contained herein as it may apply to any specific fire claim. In addition, the materials do not constitute legal advice or legal opinions and should not be relied upon as such. Students should not act upon any information in this publication without seeking Specialist legal counsel.
