Juvenile Fire Awareness and Intervention


Juvenile Fire Awareness and Intervention

Juvenile firesetting is a serious problem, regardless of the child's motivation for the fire start. This group is to disseminate information and provide resources should you detect this behavior in a child.

Location: National
Members: 25
Member Activity: Feb 21, 2018


Juvenile firesetting is a serious problem, regardless of the child's motivation for the fire start. Firesetting can begin at a very early age and may continue into adulthood. Recognizing juvenile firesetting early, and taking appropriate corrective measures can greatly reduce the risk of future firesetting incidences. Prevention, education and intervention are keys to reducing the problem and a juvenile firesetter program can provide an avenue for all three.

Juvenile firesetter intervention programs identify, evaluate and attempt to treat juvenile firesetters and their families, with the hope of preventing any recurrence of firesetting. For the majority of youths, firesetting is a behavioral problem that can be corrected with a combination of education and/or psychological counseling.

OK, its Friday and the weekend is here hope to see all back here on Monday, RMEMEBER HUG YOUR KIDS and tell them you LOVE THEM

Comment by Bob Allard on October 16, 2008 at 2:39pm
We need to give our kids more HUGS and less screaming and yelling at them ever time they do something wrong , sit down and talk with them not at them, remember what JFK said ask what we can do for our country not what our country can do for you (i think), ask our kids what we can do for them, I know sometimes they may ask alot but lets comprimise here and there. I thing I m on the right track.

I'm glad this group was started.

Dammit, I just deleted my long drawn out comment to Morris [sigh] ... I hate it when I do that! Oh well. I'll continue working on this group and hopefully we can get more idea, comments and/or stories of how you implement your firesetter programs. LOL!
Comment by Helen (Firebug) on October 15, 2008 at 12:20pm
I am the FPO for the local school and the children that attend are from 4 different fire districts, so I have alot of coverage with doing it in the schools. I also do FP for the pre-school classes too. In our area, we have a paging system that we can hear calls from 11 other depts and they are spread over a large area. Most Halloweens some depts have "prank" calls, where in kids are setting mini fires etc....but one thing for sure, out of all the depts, ours is ALWAYS the busiest...last yr we were the ONLY dept on calls. So, this yr, as every yr, the young kids and teens are planning their decent to fire ville. I got to talk to several of the kids that are known to be the ring leaders. I explained that I know we cant make them stop.....their parents did the same things when they were younger and education isnt working with them...HOWEVER without saying it is ok...i asked them to remember a few things when they start their pranks....not to destroy personal properties or ppl's work houses (fishing houses and boats, gear etc) and to not hide the bottles of gas under rags as one yr we grabbed the burning rag off a garbage box and fuel spilled over us..I pointed out that we are humans with familes and a needless injury or death would haunt them for life both mentally and through the courts....that to ruin their futures over stupidity wasnt worth it. Yes they love seeing us rush to the site and attack the fires....but they also now know the price all are paying....I hope from my chat, and they looked like they were getting what i said...that this yr might be a lil more quieter in the fire area but more mischievous pranks like eggs, toilet paper etc....Only down side is its on a Friday night and no school the next day..sigh Its amazing how smart kids dont see the possibilities of their actions until too late....hopefully my remarks of some of their past stunts and what the results were will open their eyes and or at least, make them think a few things through before doing it! I am finding that when I do FP to grades P-3 I esp seem to make headway with info to them....hoping in time this cycle of Halloween madness will ween its self out over time as educated kids come up through....
Comment by Rev Robert A Crutchfield on October 15, 2008 at 11:57am
You can't be entirely wrong Morris. When children mis-behave no matter how they do so, it is not unusual for it to be a disparate cry for attention. I ran into this with the child of a divorced and remarried woman several years ago. In that case it was only acting out in school etc. However the dynamics of the behavior are the same.

Comment by Fyre Walker on October 15, 2008 at 10:45am
You are absolutely right. Because of you, I will be listing a few of the reasons children turn to firesetting! Thanks for your input Morris, I'm looking forward to hearing more from you.
