Reducing Arson in the Community

Arson is the largest single cause of major fires in Greater Manchester and the UK and it costs every person in the county around £18 a year!

Three out of four fires attended by the Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service are caused by arson and it's costing Manchester around £37 million a year. Not only does Arson cost millions of pounds each year, it also ties up fire service resources, putting lives at risk. Anyone caught will face prosecution and a criminal record.

Arson Reduction Campaign

Our campaign 'Arson - is not a game'
To complement current 'Arson Reduction' activities, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service launched a campaign in March 2007 to drive home the message to young people that arson is not a game.

Using both radio and posters the campaign was aimed directly at offenders, who cause the anti-social effects of arson, including burnt out cars, rubbish skips, derelict buildings and homes within the community.
