Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue offers a comprehensive Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program. Parents and their children attend a 3 hour class that includes:
  • discussing the fires that were set,
  • explaining why the fire was set,
  • identifying the potential for injury and even death, and
  • creating home safety and evacuation plans.
  • The potential consequences of setting fires are also discussed, such as:

  • restitution (re-payment of damages),
  • legal involvement, and
  • future goal- or career-limitations.
  • Juvenile Firesetters can be recommended to the Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program from: parents, school personnel, mental health providers, law enforcement officers, as well as others.

    For more information or to make a referral to the Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program, please call 5616167033.
