NASFM's Juvenile Firesetter Intervention and Education Program
While NASFM no longer provides Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Training, it offers a children's book addressing the dangers of fire play by pre-teens. In addition, NASFM makes available its research data on the nature of juveniles involved in fire play and the services available to address the issue.
The following resources are available as part of our Juvenile Firesetter Program:
Juvenile Firesetters Research Reports:
Juvenile Firesetting: A Community Guide to Prevention and Intervention handbook is a guide to both prevention and intervention for everyone concerned about the problem of juvenile firesetting and children's fireplay, how to prevent it, and how to respond appropriately. It is meant for anyone working with children, including fire service and other community agencies and services, teachers and daycare providers, social workers, mental health professionals, and parents.
Keep in mind that the techniques and methods described in this book can be applied to other hazards beyond fire. Important principles for parents, such as appropriate supervision and restricting access to dangerous materials, will help keep children safe from other unintentional injuries. Coalitions are an effective way to address and reduce a variety of issues affecting any community.
NASFM Commissions Children's Book
'Children Are No Match For Fire' talks about the dangers of matches, lighters, candles, sparklers, and grills. Do your children practice Stop, Drop, and Roll?
Order a Copy Today!
Retail price for the book is $10 per copy, plus $2 shipping per book. Special shipping prices on multi-copy orders and on bulk orders apply and will be provided when placing an order. Also, a special rate applies for State Fire Marshals - so be sure to inquire!
Public Education Resource
Those wishing to purchase the books for Kindergarten classes, fire departments, or libraries may want to consider placing their orders early so that the books could be distributed before the end of the school year. The book addresses several safety issues, including children playing with sparklers during the 4th of July holiday. We recommend that the book be used in elementary school classes, fire departments, and libraries since it helps educate children and their parents.
All profits from NASFM's sale of the book will go to NASFM's Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Programs. Fire departments can also use local sales of the book to support their juvenile firesetter intervention and educational efforts. For example, a fire department might sell the books as a fund raiser in their town to raise money for a smoke trailer that teaches children how to crawl low under smoke, or to buy smoke alarms.
A Synopsis of the Story
John and Jodie are twins who are turning five years old on July 4th. They attend a class at their local fire department, where Patches, the department's Dalmatian, shows them his version of Stop, Drop, and Roll.
