Firesetters Intervention and Re-education Scheme (FIReS)

Fire related antisocial behaviour places a significant demand on the resources of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), other public services and communities.  These acts include deliberate fire setting, malicious actuation of fire alarm systems, hoax calls, hydrant abuse and attacks on personnel.

The SFRS work in partnership to deliver a Fire Setter Intervention and Re-education Scheme (FIReS).  Through a programme of targeted interventions, FIReS offers a flexible approach to assist in the education of those who demonstrate an unsafe or concerning interest in fire.
