Measures 1 to 3

Deaths, injuries and incidents which occur as a result of fire in the places where people live

 

These measures are all about making sure we can see where we need to target our prevention and community safety advice and educational activities. It is important to remember that these three measures focus on deaths, injuries and incidents in the home rather than on the road or at work. Our figures are extremely low in this performance area, but one death or injury through fire is too many. We have to be realistic, tragic accidents do happen, but we want every home to have access to the right information to be able to install and maintain working smoke alarms and plan their escape in case of an emergency.

We have noticed that although the amount of house fires we attend has dropped, the amount of people injured as a result has increased over the last five year period. We will be carrying out research within the community to find out the reasons why and to see what we can do to reduce this.

Our performance figures are updated every three months. Read our latest performance report (PDF) 

The Home Office collects detailed information on incidents attended by Fire and Rescue Services and you can
see the data on their website.
