Fire and Rescue Statistics

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service publishes two statistical bulletins annually; the Fire Safety and Organisational Statistics are published in August and the Incident Statistics are published in October of each year.

Publication dates for 2018-19 editions:

  • Fire Safety and Organisational Statistics – 9.30am 30 August 2019
  • Incident Statistics – 9.30am 31 October 2019

Alongside each bulletin, tables and charts are provided in a downloadable workbook and recent publications are accompanied with a highlights infographic. Policy documents are also provided and updated periodically. Until 2015, statistics about the fire and rescue service were published by Scottish Government.

We will be running a user consultation alongside our publications in 2019.
