Research shows that when adolescents are introduced to fire prevention and safety education at an early age, the incidents of adolescent accidental, curiosity, and attention-seeking fires are significantly reduced. However, in most areas throughout the country, practices providing such education have either become very limited and/or discontinued all together. This project aims to explore the benefits of adolescent fire prevention and safety education practices while encouraging the revitalization of and reinstatement of fire safety programs. The project also rallies for an initialization of the community group dynamic for prevention of adolescent fire starting and fire play. Additionally, the project outlines program improvements and recommendations for the future affording relevant information for community wide buy in.
