In dormitories, arson has increased three-fold since 1955. Arson is now the leading cause of student housing fires. The incidence of arson is two and one-half times greater in student housing compared to other residential structures. The city of Fresno suffers from a high rate of arson. Of the 15 million dollars in property lost each year, three million dollars, 20 percent is due to arson. This activity may occur at CSUF. We need to be prepared for this emergency.
