Notes

r - revised

(1) - tables show main injuries only, priority is given to 'burns' and being 'overcome by gas or smoke'. However, if both these injuries occur, these are shown together

(2) - if 'physical injuries' and 'shock' occur, then physical injuries is recorded

(3) - refers to persons who are not members of the fire and rescue service

(4) - refers to fire and rescue service personnel

(5) - this category is a subset of 'others' - where FRS stated smoke inhalation occurred but not severe enough to be classified as person was overcome

(6) - there has been a change in the recording of non-fatal casualties and 2009-10 and beyond can no longer be compared to previous years - see section 3 for details

(7) - see paragraph 6.3.4
