Arson Prevention Tips

Arson is the setting of someone’s personal property on fire.

  • Make sure all doors to sheds and garages are closed and locked.
  • Keep any leaves, firewood, yard trimmings, and shrubbery away from your home.
  • Keep your outside well lite with trimmed landscaping.
  • Flammable liquids, such as gasoline, paint, and mowers have to be stored in locked cabinets away from children.
  • Install an Alarm System.
  • Make sure your smoke detector is in working order.
  • If you suspect a child is setting fires, alert authorities. They may think of it as fun and games and not be aware of how dangerous it could be.
