Insurance Committee for Arson Control
3601 Vincennes Road
Indianapolis, IN 46268


Founded in 1978, the Insurance Committee for Arson Control (ICAC) is the only organization in the fire and investigation industry composed entirely of insurance companies. ICAC promotes attention to many important fire investigation and arson prosecution issues each year and works to increase public awareness of the arson problem.

Expert witnesses are the lynchpin of fire and explosion cases. If an expert is insufficiently qualified or performs poorly in the heat of litigation, even a most promising case can sour quickly. In many fire cases, the insurance claims handler or SIU supervisor are under severe time pressures to hire one or more experts for a given case, often without the help of the attorney who will ultimately handle the case. Without having experienced first-hand the ways that expert testimony can go wrong in depositions or trials, they are at a disadvantage in selecting and instructing experts.
