Media Conference - Fire Investigative Unit

Media Conference
Toledo Fire Investigation Unit
Tuesday, March 8
10 am
Outside the Jackson Street side of the
Lucas County Courthouse


Deliberately set fires have cost our community the loss of life, personal injuries, loss of real property, higher insurance rates and reduced property values. As a result, the Toledo Fire & Rescue Department and the Toledo Police Department have partnered to create the joint Fire Investigation Unit, to more effectively and efficiently investigate these serious crimes.

Please join Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson, Toledo Fire & Rescue Chief Luis Santiago, Toledo Police Chief George Kral and Lucas County Prosecutor Julia Bates as they review the impacts to date of Toledo’s Fire Investigation Unit (FIU).

Speakers will highlight the composition of the joint FIU, why it was created, how it operates, when it is activated, and its work with the court system, insurance companies and community groups to reduce the incidence of arson in Toledo.
