Our incidents fall into the following groups; fire, special service, false alarms.

1. Fires

  • Primary Fire - includes all fires in buildings, vehicles and most outdoor structures or any fire involving casualties, rescues or fires attended by five or more fire engines.
  • Secondary fires- these are smaller fires, like grass, bin or rubbish fires

2. Special Service

  • These are non-fire incidents and include things like road traffic collisions, people locked in or out, lift rescues etc.

3. False Alarms

  • Malicious False Alarms - this is when people deliberately call about false or fictitious incidents
  • Good Intent False Alarms - calls made in good faith in the belief that there is an incident.
  • False Alarm due to Apparatus - when an automated fire alarm (AFA) goes off (in non-domestic premises), but there is no actual fire
