Each year, deliberately-set fires kill more than 300 people, injure thousands and destroy more than $1 billion worth of property. Arson crimes have increased more than 400% over the past 10 years according to some estimates. Arson affects everyone. Fire-gutted building and burned-out businesses create a chain reaction of unemployment, higher insurance costs, and a reduced tax base needed to support schools, local government and other important community services.

We partner with organizations listed below to combat arson. Visit these sites to gain additional information on what you can do to help prevent arson fires.
