Firewise Scheme

Firewise Scheme

The Firewise programme provided by Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service is aimed at children and young people (and occasionally adults) who:

  • have been involved in firesetting behaviour
  • are at risk of becoming involved in firesetting behaviour
  • are considered to have an ‘unusual’ or ‘unhealthy’ fascination with fire
  • have any other specific issue related to fire or firesetting

There is no minimum age for a young person to be referred. Referrals are accepted for the Firewise scheme up to the point at which a young person reaches 18 years old (on their birthday). Each referral is dealt with individually, with a structure that is flexible both in content and number of visits.

If you have concerns about a child or young person and their relationship with fire, contact fis@bucksfire.gov.uk providing details of your concern and request a referral form.

Referrals for those displaying firesetting behaviour, or with an unhealthy fascination with fire, but are over 18 years old are considered on a case-by-case basis.

The following advice may be useful for anyone concerned about fire risk or firesetting behaviour in the home. VIEW HERE.
