Adam Rogers

Adam Rogers

Adam Rogers graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institution in 2007 with a Masters degree in fire protection engineering and a Bachelors degree in mechanical engineering.

Adam worked as the Authority Having Jurisdiction for the Smithsonian Institution facilities and museums for five years. During his time at the Smithsonian he helped to develop and implemented fire protection and life safety codes and standards for the protection and preservation of museum collections.

As an Authority Having Jurisdiction Adam became an expert commissioning agent, having evaluated and witnessed acceptance testing of nearly every type of fire protection and life safety system. This ranges from simple automatic fire sprinklers to unique specialized systems such as the hypoxic air fire protection system protecting the Star Spangled Banner, one of the only such in the United States.

While at the Smithsonian he investigated fires that occurred to identify and analyze causes and prevent reoccurrences. This ranged from small losses to the large scale industrial loss of the cooling tower serving the National Museum of Natural History. Through this work he discovered a passion for fire investigation and ultimately left the Smithsonian to pursue a career providing fire investigation and consultation services on a full time basis.
