Statistics

We publish 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. We also maintain two downloadable workbooks of our statistics and publish a guidance document to support their use.

The next editions will be published on:

  • Incident Statistics – 9.30am 31 October 2019
  • Fire Safety and Organisational Statistics – August 2020

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.

Please always source statistics from the latest version of the Tables and Charts workbook as statistics may be revised over time.

We are running a user consultation from 30 August 2019 - 30 November 2019. In this we seek to learn about the needs of our users and to recieve feedback about a number of possible changes. Please consider contributing.
