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 sensor 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
  • Have alarm systems and automatic extinguishing systems tested by an authorized company
  • Continue to conduct regular fire drills
