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.
