Flint Fire Department Ramps Up Arson Prevention

Facebook

The Flint Fire Department is ramping up its fire prevention efforts by using proactive field work and public education. Chief David Cox, Jr. has been sending out personnel, led by Fire Marshall Marcus Brown, to canvass different areas of the city to identify likely hot spots of arson activity.

Characterized by concentrations of abandoned homes that can attract arsonists, these areas are then canvassed by fire personnel to distribute arson tip line information which can lead to a possible reward of up to $5,000 said Fire Chief Cox Jr.

Residents with information should call the Michigan Arson Prevention Committee at 1-800-44-ARSON. A person convicted of arson can face up to 20 years in prison or longer if a firefighter or someone else in injured or killed.

The Flint Fire Department is the largest and only full-time fire department in Genesee County. It has mutual aid agreements with neighboring communities.
