Blaze Fire Investigation is now know as Anderson Engineering. (updated 6/28/17)
Greg Terlecky’s path to fire investigation started out with firefighting. Although it wasn’t a career that he had originally envisioned for himself, when a friend talked him into taking the entry exam and giving it a try, he found that the work suited him very much. This is also what happened when he moved into investigative work with the Office of Fire Investigation (OFI) for the City of Chicago at the suggestion of a colleague. Now as an investigator for Blaze Fire, Greg is able to apply his knowledge and experience to accomplish the kind of forensic work that has moved his career to the next level.
Strong Culture of Cooperation
Just as he was introduced to firefighting by a friend, it was a colleague who introduced him to Blaze Fire Investigation. What drew Greg to Blaze was the strong culture of cooperation and the resources that the company has readily available because of the relationship with Anderson Engineering of New Prague. Greg knows that he can call on Forensic Electrical Engineers to validate his interpretation of evidence or to provide guidance when the case is particularly complex. Having strong administrative support is also a great asset to Greg when he’s in the field, allowing him to focus on what he does best.
Expertise and Team Work
Greg holds the C.F.E.I. and C.F.I. credential and is in the process of attaining certification for Marine Investigation. Continuing education and training is an integral part of the fire investigation profession, and Greg has found that Blaze Fire Investigation not only encourages but supports his goals to further his career with training and education. Greg appreciates the way that his individual career path is important to Blaze Fire Investigation owners, Erik Anderson and Beth Anderson, and he recognizes that their investment in him is a reflection of their overriding philosophy of using team work and expertise to get the best results for their clients.
“It’s very clear that everyone at Blaze and Anderson Engineering are there to help each other and pool resources,” says Greg. “There is a definite feeling of cooperation here and that translates into a better product for the client.”
