Fire and emergencies

Fire and resilience research and statistics

We collect, publish and analyse statistics on fires and other incidents attended by the Fire and Rescue Service, together with research, in support of fire and resilience policy.


The Department for Communities and Local Government collects information on fires and other incidents attended by Fire and Rescue Services in the UK. We use this information to underpin policies across the Department including those on fire, resilience and some aspects of building regulations. We also use the information to assist with research - for example on those sections of the community which are most vulnerable to fire.

What we are doing

We undertake research and analysis to underpin policy areas such as national resilience, fire safety and prevention, Fire and Rescue Service efficiency and effectiveness. There is an annual research programme and projects are prioritised as needed each year. All research projects across the Department are listed on the research management database: see link below.
