About the Program
The Senior Caseworker assigned to this team participates in Juvenile
Fire Intervention Response and Education (J-Fire) meetings. Referrals
for youth who are identified to have fire-setting behaviors can come
from local fire officials, law enforcement, schools, parents, and service providers.
The J-Fire assessment is done by casework staff with
the child and family along with local fire officials in order to
determine risk levels and the need for education or further evaluation.
