The following safety tips will ensure that schools can prevent arson from taking place.

  • Teach students to respect fire.
  • Establish a Crime Stoppers program within the school where students can anonymously report crimes. 
  • Ensure that the building is well lit and install motion senor lighting on exterior walls. 
  • Install skirting and secure venting on portable classroom facilities. 
  • Consider installing fencing to close off alcoves and narrow spaces between buildings to deter vandals. 
  • Test alarm systems, automatic extinguishing systems and continue to conduct regular fire drills. 
  • Place dumpsters and sporting equipment storage facilities well away from the main building.
