Although arson is generally perceived to be a threat to property rather than to life, over 60 people die each year as a result of fires that are deliberately lit in buildings. In addition, over 2000 people are injured in such fires. Deliberate fires in road vehicles and outdoors result in 30 more deaths and 200 more injuries.

At the time of publishing, Communities and Local Government (CLG) estimates that the total cost of arson is over 2 billion annually (for England and Wales) with malicious false alarms costing a further 80 million.

An awareness of the problems and occurrence of arson is one of the important roles that a fire safety manager, or the ?responsible person? for fire safety in the premises has to play. This popular book, now in its third edition, provides a comprehensive overview of arson, analysing why and how it occurs, in addition to advice on dealing with it effectively.

Contents: Introduction Arsonists and their motives Arson in commerce and industry Arson in dwellings Arson in public buildings Arson on construction sites Arson and vehicles Empty buildings, farms and grassland fires Fire investigation for fire safety managers Designing against arson Protection against arson An arson risk assessment method Incendiaries, bombs and terrorism Annexes Index
