ABSTRACT

Arson Control Guide for Volunteer Fire Departments   [open pdf - 4MB]

"Arson is a human-made disaster. This crime causes more deaths than all natural disasters combined, and its economic toll in direct and indirect losses rises into billions of dollars. That is why reducing arson is a major Federal Emergency Management Agency goal, consistent with our efforts to reduce death, injury and destruction. To reduce arson, improvement needs to be made in the management of prevention and control programs, in the detection and investigation of the crime and in the elimination of economic and psychological incentives of arson. This manual will prove to be an invaluable guidebook to help prevent and control this tragic and wasteful manmade disaster."
