Meet The Team

Mike Somers, Fire Consultant

In 2009 I earned my Associates of Applied Science degree for Fire Science from Black River Technical College in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. I was a volunteer firefighter from 2009 to 2014 when I gained employment as a career firefighter with the City of Poplar Bluff, Missouri.

In 2019 I had the opportunity to attend the Missouri Division of Fire Safety Certified Investigator Program. After completion of the Missouri Division of Fire Safety Certified Investigator Program I became a Fire Investigator for the Poplar Bluff Fire Department, where I worked along side other investigators such as the Missouri State Fire Marshalls to assist in Origin and Cause investigations inside the City of Poplar Bluff, Missouri. During this time, I began some on the job learning from experienced Origin and Cause investigators in the Private Sector, who were a wealth of knowledge.

After years of assisting Senior Investigators conduct Origin and Cause investigations, I gained employment with Midwest Fire Consulting Group. I am a member of the International Association of Arson Investigators.

I am committed to always continuing my education in Fire Science and Origin and Cause investigations.

As a professional firefighter and a fire investigator it is my objective to provide the most accurate information to my client based upon my training, experience, use of the Scientific Method, and Systematic Approach. I believe the factual information of a fire cause discovered today can save lives and property in the future.
