Firesetters

Description

This video focuses on the ongoing problem of firesetters and the potential dangers that lie within school corridors. It also asks what's being done to prevent future fire attacks.

Around 20 schools suffer a fire attack every week, on average. See three young firesetters explain their reasons for doing it, and discover what the fire services are doing to tackle their behaviour.

The fire service's LIFE Project teaches 15 young people over the course of a week, seeking to turn them into a disciplined team of rookie firefighters.

They use controversial shock tactics and expose the pupils to the potential consequences of their firesetting actions.
