Juvenile Firesetter (J-FIRE) Program

Emergency Response
Dana Smith, Commissioner

 

The mission of the Dutchess County J-FIRE Program is to provide a comprehensive, non-punitive, multidisciplinary approach to address the problem of juvenile firesetting by early identification, assessment, education, and intervention in an effort to protect lives and property.
 

The J-FIRE Program is a collaborative effort including:

• firefighters

• police officers

• probation officers

• mental health clinicians.

Rather than punish children who use fire, our goal is to improve safety for families.  For more information please click on the link below.
