National arson awareness week

May 1-7 marks this year’s Arson Awareness Week. The theme “Working Together to Extinguish Serial Arson” focuses the public attention on the value of a collaborative effort with law enforcement, fire and emergency service departments, and the community to battle serial arsonists.

The goal for this year’s Arson Awareness Week (AAW) is to focus attention on serial arsonists and provide law enforcement, the fire service, and communities with tools and tactics to battle arson in their cities and towns. The USFA is partnering with the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI); Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); USAonWatch; National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM); National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC); and the Insurance Committee for Arson Control (ICAC).
