This publication provides a detailed overview of Scottish Fire and Rescue Services incident statistics covering the 10 year period from 2002-03 to 2011-12 at Fire and Rescue Service and Scotland level. The information supplied for 2011-12 is calculated on provisional data.
These statistics are compiled from reports submitted to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) on incidents attended by Scotland's Fire and Rescue Services (FRS).
In April 2009, Scotland started to use the Incident Recording System (IRS); this is an electronic system which captures all incidents that Scotland's Fire and Rescue Services attend. This has caused some discontinuity with reporting of the time series for some of the tables.
This publication is the collective work of staff within the DCLG's Fire and Resilience Directorate and Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services.
