General description

This table shows numbers of fatalities and non-fatal casualties by grouped age.
Non-fatal casualties marked as 'not fire-related' have not been excluded (from 2009-10 onwards) due to widespread inappropriate use of this field. Therefore there is a possible discontinuity in the time series between 2008-09 and 2009-10.
Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS). This is a live system and consequently it is possible that data extracted at a different time may not match the figures in this table. For instance the data published in the Performance Indicator tables are extracted at a different time and so may not match exactly those presented here.
