Number of fire-related casualties in England in the reporting period divided by latest ONS mid-year population estimate, multiplied by 100,000. Quarterly population estimates use average quarterly growth rates.Why is this indicator in the business plan?
Change in the number of fire-related casualties demonstrates the net effect of activity relating to fire safety and of other factors affecting the incidence and seriousness of fires in terms of casualties.How often is it updated?
Every six months: April to September data are first published each January, and October to March data are first published each July.Where does the data come from?

TBC.Type of Data
National Statistics.Robustness and data limitations
The data are fit for purpose. Fire and Rescue Authorities record details of incidents attended routinely and subject to national standards and guidelines. Fire casualties data are seasonal with slightly higher totals typically in winter months compared to summer months. As a result latest data are compared to the same period 12 months earlier.Links to Further Information
