LPI 105 - Accidental fires in dwellings per 10,000 dwellings
In 2016/17, we attended 546 accidental dwelling fires. This equates to 7.5 fires per 10,000 dwellings which was higher than in the previous year.
Between 2014/15 and 2015/16 there was an average of 8 accidental dwelling fires per 10,000 dwellings. A target has been set to reduce this average by 3.7% over the next three years (2015-18).
This indicator measures the number of accidental fires in people’s homes.
This chart shows our performance over the last four years (dark blue bars) as well as our performance target for the next three years (red bar). Our past performance is also compared against the average (grey bars) and top 25% performance of all 46 fire and rescue authorities in England (yellow line) as well as against a group of 15 fire and rescue authorities in England which are very similar to us according to the CIPFA nearest neighbour model (blue line).
