The mission of F.l.R.S.T. is to provide educational intervention to youth who exhibit fire-setting behavior and their families, thus reducing the incidence of injury, death, and property loss due to juvenile-set fires.
The interview and educational components of our program have been modeled from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Phoenix Fire Department.
The educational program that the Duluth Fire Department provides through F.l.R.S.T. is the only one in the state that provides parents with an educational element that is led by a licensed counselor .from the Human Development Center.
