About the Program
The Juvenile Fire Setter program is a service offered by the Sterling Heights Fire Department. The program was designed to instruct children in proper fire safety practices. This program is geared toward young-aged participants who have played with matches or who have started a fire.
Through the program, the child and family would discuss the incident and fire prevention methods with a specially-trained firefighter. After the initial interview, the child is invited back to the fire station for a tour. The firefighter will maintain periodic contact with the family to ensure the child continues to practice fire safety.
