Be vigilant!

Most arson fires affecting businesses start outside the premises.

Are you a target?

The culprits are often young vandals whose motive is to cause trouble. They are opportunists who light their fires with anything readily to hand - rubbish, packaging, and waste in open skips.

How easily could a fire be started or an incendiary device be concealed?

Arsonists also strike inside the premises - a member of staff with a grudge, or others trying to make a point or cover up another crime.
