FIRE RESCUE

Youth Firesetter Prevention and Intervention Program

Broward County’s Youth Firesetter Prevention and Intervention Program provides specialized fire safety education for at-risk children ages 2-17 with an interest in or a history of starting fires, initiating bomb threats, creating destructive incendiary devices or pulling fire alarms.

Referred youth and families attend a family-oriented Firesetter Intervention Workshop and participate in discussions, intervention activities and video presentations. The duration of the workshop is approximately two hours in length, with additional follow-up and resources provided to families as needed.

Any parent or guardian may refer a child to the Juvenile Firesetter Prevention and Intervention Program by contacting their local fire department or program staff at 954-831-8210.
