YOUTH FIRESETTER INTERVENTION PROGRAM
This Program is an intervention and educational program aimed at reducing the number of fires and burn injuries caused by youth experimenting with fire. As an educational intervention workshop the program targets at-risk youth who have expressed an interest in fire and/or have been involved in firesetting activities. Rather than a punitive approach, areas of focus within this program include: Responsibility, Character Building, Decision Making, Self Esteem, and Fire Safety. Other elements of this program include a tour of Hospital Burn Unit. Student participation and parent support are critical elements for the youth’s success in this program.
