Added to StatsWales: July 2012
Source: The Home Office
2017-18 and April to September 2018 data are provisional.
Data for April to September 2018 were extracted in February 2019
2016-17 and 2017-18 were extracted in July 2018.
2015-16 data were extracted in July 2017.
Data from April 2014 to March 2015 were extracted from IRS in July 2016.
Data from April 2013 to March 2014 were extracted from IRS in June 2015.
Data from April 2012 to March 2013 were extracted from IRS in May 2014.
Data from April 2011 to March 2012 were extracted from IRS in May 2013.
Data from April 2010 to March 2011 were extracted from IRS in May 2012.
Data from April 2009 to March 2010 were extracted from IRS in May 2011.
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).

Frequency of publication
Twice yearly

Data reference periods
Data shown in quarters, bracketed in financial years.
From 2007-08 to September 2018.

Users, uses and context
The data are used to inform policy decisions and to provide contextual information. The data is used by the Welsh Government to help monitor trends in incidents attended by FRAs over time and provides information on FRAs’ performance and activities to citizens and communities in Wales.
See web link for further information.

Rounding applied
Fire data prior to 2009-10 are based on a sampled dataset and so are rounded to the nearest whole number. For this reason the sum of component parts may not equal the totals shown.

Revisions information
Revisions are marked with an (r). The most recent year shown is currently provisional and may be revised when the table is next updated.
