Further detail on fire statistics
There were 370 deliberate building fires in quarter 1 of 2022-23, up from 343 in the same quarter of 2021-22. Over the same period, the number of deliberate road vehicle fires fell from 213 to 185. There has been a long-term downward trend in deliberate building and deliberate road vehicle fires since this series began.
Unwanted fire alarm signals (UFAS) describe avoidable false alarm signals from a workplace, either from an automatic fire alarm or from a person. There were 6,815 UFAS incidents in quarter 1 of 2022-23, which made up 27% of all incidents attended in that quarter. This was up from 22% of all incidents attended in the equivalent quarter of 2021-22. The Covid-19 pandemic could have influenced the previous year's figures as most offices were closed and homeworking was encouraged. This meant that less people were in workplace buildings and so there was less opportunity for an unwanted signal to be triggered.
