Northwestern Youth Fire Intervention Response, Education and Safety Partnership
NoFIRES is a non-profit organization that offers education and intervention to youth who have misused fire. We serve the 51 communities in Franklin County, Hampshire County, North Quabbin Region, and the City of Holyoke. The core mission is to protect our youth, their families, and the communities in which they live from the dangerous, and sometimes fatal, act of setting fires. A collaboration of fire, law enforcement, mental healthcare providers and social service agencies, NoFIRES is committed to providing a coordinated and appropriate response to youth under the age of 18, who set fires or engage in fire-related behavior. The NoFIRES program has quickly become a model program to provide fire safety education.
