Brant TAPP-C

The Arson Prevention Program for Children (TAPP–C) can help you with a child's fire setting behaviour by finding out where it comes from and if it's likely to continue. TAPP–C's goal is to reduce the risk of fire setting by children and youth in our community.


If you have a concern with your child, please call the Fire Prevention Division at 519-752-0540 for more information.
