Juvenile involvement in fire setting is a serious problem in Alberta. There is a tremendous cost to the community from child set fires, and too often the cost is the life of the child who set the fire. Fire setting by children is a problem that needs immediate attention.
The City of Grande Prairie Fire Department promotes partnerships between the fire service, law enforcement, mental health practitioners, the medical community, and the child advocate agencies that must deal with the aftermath of child-set fires.
Parents and caregivers need to teach their children about the power of fire; that a fire can get out of control in seconds, can double in size every minute and can overcome an entire home in just five minutes.
Grande Prairie Fire Learn Not to Burn program is designed to prevent curiosity in the first place by providing fire and life safety education to the youth in our community.
Teenagers set fires for many reasons – a prank, a dare, to cover a crime, and most don’t realize that they are breaking the law and could go to jail.
At age 12 and older youth can get into trouble for committing crimes such as arson and may have to go to court with their parents.
Potential punishment for fire setting include:
