Data prior to April 2009 were collected via the paper forms, FDR1 and FDR3. Numbers of fires prior to April 2009 are based on a sampled database.
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.

Data collection and calculation
Data prior to 2009-10 were collected via the Fire Data Report (FDR) paper forms.
Data from 2009-10 onwards were collected via the Incident Recording System (IRS).
