Juvenile Firesetter Program


Juvenile Fire Setter Program

Time: 1.5-2 hours

If your child has played with fire, if your child has deliberately set a fire, if you are unsure of how to teach your child about fire safety... Call the fire department, we can help! 

Juvenile Firesetters is an intervention program designed to educate children and parents about fire safety and the consequences of fire. Each family meets individually with a trained fire service educator. The educator will discuss the situation with the family and provide fire safety education. If a child needs additional intervention, such as counseling, the educator can link the family up with these services. Fire department services are free.

Who can make a referral? Anyone who cares about the safety of a child can call for help: families, friends, neighbors, teachers and you.

To refer someone for a class call the Community Outreach Office at 970-549-5858 or by e-mail at gjfirepio@gjcity.org.

All classes are held at the Fire Administration Building, 625 Ute Ave. Grand Junction, CO 81501.
