This publication provides a detailed overview of finalised Scottish Fire and Rescue Services incident statistics covering the 10 year period from 1999-00 to 2008-09 at Fire and Rescue Services and Scotland level. High level provisional data for 2009-10 has also been included in this publication and once this data has been finalised it will be included, as confirmed data, in a future publication.
These statistics are compiled from reports submitted to Communities and Local Government on fires attended by Scotland's Fire and Rescue Services ( FRSs) in 2008-09.
In contrast to previous publications, this publication has changed from reporting on a calendar year basis to a financial year basis. This brings it into alignment with other UK fire statistics publications and Justice Analytical Services publications.
This publication is the collective work of staff within Communities and Local Government Fire and Resilience Directorate and Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services.
