London Fire Brigade Incident Records

London Fire Brigade is the busiest fire and rescue service in the country and one of the largest firefighting and rescue organisations in the world. Each year they receive around a quarter of a million ‘999’ calls of which around 120,000 are incidents requiring a fire engine response.

This dataset contains the details of every incident responded to since January 2009. Information is provided for when and where the incident happened an the type of incident dealt with.

Zip file containing two CSV files (38MB)

Metadata for this file is available which also includes a Glossary and descriptions for the incident ‘Stop-codes’.

Also available is all LFB mobilisation records (for fire engines) to incidents since January 2009.

This data about the incidents attended by the London Fire Brigade includes the fire station area where the incident happened; the fire station area is currently used for mobilising and other administrative purposes.

On 9 January 2014, ten London fire stations were closed as part of the Authority’s Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5), and fire station areas were changed to reflect these closures with the station areas of closed stations being distributed to adjacent fire station areas.

To provide consistent incident data, stations grounds have been changed for all incidents in this data set and reflect the station areas in use from 9 January 2014.
