Deliberate fire-raising, or arson as it is commonly referred to in England and Wales, is a serious threat to all premises, be they residential, commercial or industrial. It is a problem that is not new, but one that has grown since the 1950s to the extent that over 40% of all fires in industry and commerce and over 20% of fires in residential properties are now lit deliberately. Because of the magnitude of the problem, it is often overlooked that many measures can be introduced to deter fire-raising at little cost to a business.
