One of the keys to fire prevention is educating the public through various programs and activities. One of these programs, the Juvenile Fire Setter Program targets and educates children involved in incidents of fire setting or equipment tampering. This intervention redirects children's interests, which ultimately decreases fire loss due to juvenile arson.
In between presentations made at schools, nursing homes and other local facilities, Fire Education Specialists lead tours while teaching fire safety at the Fire Museum of Memphis. This unique interactive fire safety facility is one of the most popular educational and historical attractions in Memphis.
