The London Fire Brigade’s Juvenile Firesetters Intervention Scheme is here to help children and young people who have set fires. We offer one-to-one fire safety education and advice for children and their parents or carers.
Children and young people start to play with fire for various reasons, ranging from natural curiosity in toddlers to older children using firesetting to express feelings of anger or emotional distress. Learn the telltale signs to watch out for here.
Without help and guidance, firesetting behaviour can increase and lead to consequences including serious injuries and damage to homes, schools and property. Act now, and you could save lives.
