NVFC Resource Spotlight: Firefighter Arson Prevention
June 9, 2014
While most firefighters serve their communities honorably, studies indicate that there are over 100 firefighter arson arrests each year. The impact of a firefighter arsonist can be devastating for a department and a community. The NVFC has produced tools to help departments prevent cases of firefighter arson and guide departments through mitigation in the event that an incident does occur. These include a report on the firefighter arson problem; the Firefighter Arson Prevention and Recovery Toolkit; a video explaining the problem and proactive measures departments can take; a poster that can be hung up at the station; and a firefighter arson incident database.
