Sean's Story Testimonials

"I received the DVD Sean's Story: My Life Torn Apart by Firesetting in the mail yesterday, and it is wonderful! I am so appreciative...for what you are doing, and have been doing for many years, to help raise awareness to the growing issue of youth and fire play.

I have been using the DVD In An Instant: Fire Injury Prevention as part of my Youth Firesetting Intervention Program since it came available, and it has been a HUGE asset in my toolbox! This video has touched more lives, not only the kids that I work with but their parents and caregivers, than you can imagine.

I hope you will convey to everyone there that people like myself all over the United States are very thankful for their hard work and dedication in helping to prevent the devastation caused by fire play. The majority, if not all, fire departments have extremely tight budgets and are not able to afford to purchase DVD's of this quality, and even more amazing is the fact that you're even providing the materials to go along with it for free! I'm sure I wasn't the only educator doing the "happy dance"!"
