Arson Awareness Week is always the first full week of May. The U.S. Fire Administration has a different theme every year.

The U.S. Fire Administration's Arson Awareness Week theme for 2019 is Preventing Arson on Construction Sites. The U.S. Fire Administration has information and materials that will help first responders, construction companies and the community at large  prevent arson fires at construction sites. Everyone has a role to play.
