Kids and Fire: Not a Hot Match!

Did you know that arson is the number one most expensive property crime in the United States, and that many of those fires are caused by children and teens? More than 7,100 youth-set fires occur every year, resulting in millions of dollars in damage, and often tragic injuries and even death. Although some of the fires are unintentional, many are not. It is important to learn about this prevalent problem and how to protect your family and property.

Fire fighter Dave Meadows and mental health counselor Michael Slavkin, experts from the Allen County Juvenile Firesetting Taskforce, will be visiting the Aboite Branch Library on Wednesday, May 9 from 6:00-7:00 PM to give an interactive presentation for children, teens, and parents. Don't miss this opportunity!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to call Cindy Harter, Aboite Branch Youth Librarian, at 260-421-1310.
