Juvenile Firesetter Intervention

Juvenile Firesetting

Many adults can probably remember a time in their childhood when they were curious about fire. Today, children who use and misuse fire are a growing statistic. The Cottonwood Fire and Medical Department has a Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program to help protect our children.

Children of any age that display a curiosity for playing with fire or that set fires, should be taken seriously. Keep all firesetting materials in a location inaccessible to children. For additional information or to seek assistance for a child, please contact our Fire Prevention Division at 928-634-2741.
