Youth Fire-Starter Prevention Program
Realizing that youth fire setting is a major community issue, the Kingman Fire Department offers a youth Fire-starter prevention program to residents of our community. Youths enter the program in a variety of ways:
- a parent or legal guardian may call the Fire Department for assistance
- schools may call the fire department for assistance
- a youth may be encountered at the fire scene and referred to the program by the company officer or a fire investigator
- law enforcement or the juvenile justice system may refer a child
- mental health agencies may call for assistance
The program's components are based on the individual needs of the child. The program is offered free of charge. For more information please contact the fire department at (928)753-2891.
