Youth Firesetters Program
|What is the Roseville Juvenile Firesetter Program? |
The Roseville Fire Department is a member of the Sacramento Area Juvenile Firesetter Coalition. This coalition is a regional program dedicated to a cohesive partnership among community agencies to reduce the number of fire injuries and deaths by providing assistance to the children who exhibit firesetting behavior. Members of this coalition include Sacramento Metro Fire Department, Sacramento City Fire Department, Folsom Fire Department, Rocklin Fire Department, Placer Consolidated Fire District and the Roseville Fire Department.
The Sacramento Area Juvenile Firesetter Coalition hosts four academies throughout the year.

Parents are also required to attend the academy with their children.
