Arson has been the leading cause of fires in Edmonton for the last 12 years. It accounts for roughly one-third of all working fires that Edmonton firefighters respond to annually.
Edmonton Fire Rescue Services is working with all levels of government, community groups, business leaders, municipal departments, other fire services, Mental Health and Health Care groups, Police Agencies and the public to partner together to reduce arson in our community.
What is Arson?
Arson is defined as the crime of any willful or malicious burning or attempt to burn, a dwelling, house, public building, motor vehicle or aircraft, or personal property of another.
Arson affects all of us in one form or another, financially or emotionally. By working together we will ensure greater success in making our city a safer community where we can all work, play and enjoy our families.

Fire Summit III
Edmonton Fire Services began holding fire summits every two years as part of ongoing efforts to engage with the public to prevent fires and promote fire safety in Edmonton.
The goal for Fire Summit III was to raise awareness of how arson affects our community and to develop creative strategies to address the issue.
