Youth Firesetter Intervention Program

About the Youth Firesetter Intervention Program

The Youth Fire Setter Intervention Program is a statewide standardized program to provide prevention education/intervention and referrals, if warranted, for the children and families of Illinois to reduce the frequency and severity of fires set by youths. Partnering with the fire service, this program provides a coordinated referral center for the assessment and treatment of youth fire setters and their families, thereby slowing down the often devastating results of fire setting. Prevention education can quell the youth fire problem but only when properly targeted, designed, and delivered. The behaviors causing the problem must be considered because what motivates their behavior is the surest clue to solving the youth fire setting problem.
