Understanding fire safety doesn’t always stop at childhood. Many, such as people who are new to our country, or adults with fire setting tendencies, may never have been provided with this help. Our adult education work is targeted towards individual need and, in the case of delivering the Prince’s Trust team programme, often involves our staff in activity designed to make our communities safer more generally. We also offer an Adult Fire Setters Intervention course.

  • Princes Trust Team Programme

  • Adult Fire Setters Intervention

    This programme is a resource pack, designed by LFRS in partnership with criminal justice and health services to help them work with adults who have fire setting tendencies. The package is designed to increase the individual’s awareness of the dangers and consequences of fire; as well as their knowledge of basic fire safety to reduce the harm fire can cause when it is used deliberately. It allows individual’s circumstances to be considered and included in any treatment plans.

    It covers:

    • Consideration of the fire related activity they were involved with, including circumstances and consequences
    • The law relating to arson
    • Understanding the treatment and effects of burns injuries
    • The danger of smoke, flames and how fire behaves
    • The importance of smoke detection and escape plans

    How do I book?

    The pack is available for loan to lend to a lead agency for delivery. For more information you can download the briefing note. A booking form which includes data collection to ensure there is no duplication, can also be found HERE and then returned via email to fires@lancsfirerescue.org.uk .
