Metadata

General description

The table shows the number of fires, associated casualties and fire false alarms attended each quarter by the Fire and Rescue Authorities in Wales.
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 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.
Data from April 2009 to March 2010 were extracted from IRS in May 2011.
Data from April 2010 to March 2011 were extracted from IRS in May 2012.
Data from April 2011 to March 2012 were extracted from IRS in May 2013.
