Fire and Rescue Statistics

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service publishes two statistical bulletins each year.  Until 2015 statistics about the fire and rescue service were published by Scottish Government.

The main bulletins are accompanied by tables and charts in Excel format for analysis, and by policy documents explaining how SFRS will deal with issues of quality, revisions and disclosure.

The 2017-18 editions of these bulletins will be published as follows:

  • 31st August 2018, 9.30 am - Fire Safety and Organisational Statistics
  • 31st October 2018, 9.30 am - Incident Statistics
