This publication presents fire and rescue incident statistics for Scotland, including information on fires, special service incidents, casualties and false alarms. The bulletin presents data for the 10 year period from 2004-05 to 2013-14 at Scotland level and for 2013-14 at Local Authority level. The information supplied for 2013-14 is based on provisional data.
On the 1st April 2013, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) replaced the 8 former Fire and Rescue Services (FRSs) of Scotland. The statistics in this publication cover the first year following the establishment of the SFRS. As such, this is the first year that the publication includes statistics at Local Authority level, in place of former FRS level breakdowns.
This bulletin is the primary source of information relating to all incidents attended by the SFRS. The statistics inform National Outcome 9 - 'we live our lives safe from crime, disorder and danger' and National Outcome 11 - 'we have strong, resilient and supportive communities where people take responsibility for their own actions and how they affect others'. The bulletin is used by a wide range of users and stakeholders to monitor trends and develop evidence-based research and policy.
