Designed to teach communities how to develop an effective juvenile firesetter intervention program. The cornerstone of the blueprint is understanding the personality profiles of juvenile firesetters (JF) and their families. The next step is identifying at-risk youth and assessing the likelihood that they will become involved in future firesetting incidents. The identification of the 3 levels of firesetting risk -- little, definite, and extreme -- leads to specific types of intervention, including evaluation, education, referral and follow-up. But the program must be part of a community network, which consists of a continuum of care designed to provide a range of intervention services to JF and their families.
