General description
The table shows the numbers of fires and associated casualties (fatal and non-fatal) attended by the Fire and Rescue Authorities in Wales. The data is shown by time of day.
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.
