FireSafe

FireSafe is our young person firesetter intervention programme. It is a cognitive behavioural programmed aimed at 12-17yrs aimed at low to medium risk fire setters. The programme is mainly educational but also covers consequential thinking and victim awareness.

The key areas addressed are:

  • Cognitive behavioural skills
  • Education and fire awareness
  • Relapse Prevention

This unique programme was developed by the Cognitive Development Centre, with the support of Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service. The intervention was developed following an intensive research process which identified the lack of any accredited intervention scheme for young people where fire play /fire starting and fire setting was part of their profile problem.

DangerPoint co-ordinates the FireSafe programme for all young people across North Wales in partnership with North Wales Fire & Rescue Service.

If you have any concerns about a young person with regards to fire setting or would like further information on the programme, please contact North Wales Fire & Rescue Service to discuss: ct.control@nwales-fireservice.org.uk
