Streich specializes in codes (IBC, NFPA, OSHA, UL) and fire and explosion investigations for both criminal and civil cases. He has testified as an expert witness in high profile cases and has worked closely with insurance companies to help determine subrogation cases. He has a keen eye for finding the facts and presenting his case. Today, he uses these skills to reduce the loss of life, limb and capital by using predictive measures to prevent injuries.
