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.
On this page, we publish details of every incident attended by the London Fire Brigade since 1 January 2009.
Below is a dashboard that allows you to interact with this data and drill down to Ward or Postcode level. If you have any questions about this tool please email email@example.com
The main dataset on this page (zip file) contains the details of every incident which the LFB attended since 1 January 2009. Information is provided for when and where the incident happened and the type of incident. This is a large data file, suitable for data analysts, and those who have data manipulation tools and experience.
There is a smaller dataset which has the incidents attended by LFB in the last three years, which will be easier for those who have more limited data analysis skills and tools.
Both datasets are updated every month.
Also available are 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 since 9 January 2014.
