Juvenile Firesetters (also known as TAPP-C) is an intervention programto help young people having problems with firesetting or arson. The program consists of a trained fire inspector meeting with the juvenile and his or her parents after the parents have been told about the program. The juvenile receives approximately one hour of counselling about fire safety and the dangers that are involved with setting fires. After the counselling session, the child is assigned an essay or a speech on a pre-determined subject relevant to his or her situation.
