Response Standards Risk Areas

To enable us to assess the dwelling risk within our communities, our area is divided into 41 groupings of around 20,000 residents; we call these ‘risk regions’ and there are 41 such risk regions within our Service area, varying in geographical size. The dwelling risk rating is based upon the casualty and fatality rate per head of population, within each risk region.

Our Response Standards tell you how quickly we will have a fire engine in attendance at an incident. They are based on domestic risk areas, assessed as high, medium or low risk.

Two fire engines will be mobilised to dwelling fires and Road Traffic Collisions. The first will be in attendance within the following times, on a minimum of 90% of occasions.

• High Risk Area 8 Minutes
• Medium Risk Area 12 Minutes
• Low Risk Area 20 Minutes
• Road Traffic Collision in any Risk Area 15 Minutes

The second fire engine mobilised to a dwelling fire or a Road Traffic Collision will be in attendance within 5 minutes of the first fire engine arriving at the incident, on a minimum 80% of occasions. We are proud to say that, despite the standards we set for attending incidents across the service area being some of the most challenging in Great Britain, we consistently exceed our response targets.
