This release contains statistics about incidents attended by fire and rescue services (FRSs) in England. The statistics are sourced from the Home Office’s online Incident Recording System (IRS), which allows FRSs to complete an incident form for every incident attended, be it a fire, a false alarm or a non-fire (also known as a Special Service) incident. The online IRS was introduced in April 2009. Previously, paper forms were submitted by FRSs and an element of sampling was involved in the data compilation process.

Key Facts:
  • FRSs attended 564,827 incidents in 2017/18. This was a one per cent increase compared with the previous year (560,453) but a 29 per cent decrease compared with ten years ago (791,746 in 2007/08).
  • FRSs attended 167,150 fires in 2017/18. This was a three per cent increase compared with the previous year (161,997) but a 43 per cent decrease compared with ten years ago (293,920 in 2007/08).
  • FRSs attended 225,625 fire false alarms in 2017/18. This was a one per cent increase compared with the previous year (223,896) but a 32 per cent decrease compared with ten years ago (331,478 in 2007/08).
  • FRSs attended 172,052 non-fire incidents in 2017/18. This was a one per cent decrease compared with the previous year (174,560).
  • Of all incidents attended by FRSs in 2017/18, fires accounted for 30 per cent and nonfire incidents 30 per cent. The remaining 40 per cent were fire false alarms, which continued to be the largest incident type. In 2007/08 these percentages were 37 per cent (fires attended), 21 per cent (non-fire incidents) and 42 per cent (fire false alarms).
