Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service

Extinguish Programme.

Extinguish Programme

Extinguish is a fire awareness programme designed to support and educate children and young people up to the age of 18 who may play with, or who have a fascination with fire inside or outside of the home, whether this be a one-off incident or repeat activity, our programme can offer support.

We work closely with other organisations, parents and carers and when someone has been identified as being at risk of firesetting, we provide our engaging fire safety education. We do this through games, videos, quizzes and 3D interactive videos. We look at how the young person is reacting and develop a suitable learning experience for them, making the programme truly bespoke to each person.

 

During the programme we aim to:

 

  • Deliver as many interventions as required to ensure key messages are relayed and understood

  • Help them understand and manage the thoughts and feelings that lead them to start and play or engage with fires

  • Teach them about the effect that starting fires can have on themselves, others and their community

  • Inform parents and carers about safe practices

  • Ensure they are aware of fire safety, the purpose of smoke alarms, the devastation that fire can cause, how quickly fire can spread and the consequences of this

  • Ensure they know the role of the fire service and how we can offer support in their community and how they can get involved with Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service

 
Extinguish can also be offered to help support work in reducing anti-social behaviour when related to fire misuse or fire related crime. 
 
If you know or are worried about a child or young person who plays with or you may think has a fascination with fire, please complete our online referral form and one of our team will be in touch to talk this through with you further.
