Notes

r - revised

(1) - with the exception of 2009-10 and 2010-11, figures for primary fires are based on sample data weighted to Fire and Rescue Service level

(2) - does not include incidents that occurred during national industrial action in November 2002, January 2003 and February 2003

(3) - includes caravans and houseboats used solely as a permanent dwelling

(4) - 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
