Impacts of the changes to fire stations and fire engines as a result of the Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5)

Data about response times to incidents, fires and fire safety work to support analysis of impacts of the implementation of changes to London Fire Brigade fire stations and deployment of fire engines in January 2015 as a result of the LFEPA Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5)

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 200,000 ‘999’ calls of which around 100,000 are incidents requiring a fire engine response. On 9 January 2014, ten London fire stations were closed as part of the Authority’s Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5), 14 fire engines (net) and one fire rescue unit were removed from service, and some other fire engines deployed to different stations. In September, the Authority’s Strategy Committee requested a report assessing the impact of the LSP5 changes since January 2014. A report to the full LFEPA meeting on 27 November 2014 provides that assessment (report FEP2363 - Statement of Assurance 2013/14 and the impact of the Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5)) and is available here. Included in that report are detailed data tables providing relevant data to help assess the impact of LSP5 changes at borough and ward level. Those datasets – which comprise appendices 3 and 4 of the report – are made available here in open format (CSV). The data sets cover 12 month periods from 2011/12 to 2013/14 (12 months April to March each year) plus total data for the period January to August 2014.

LFEPA already published full datasets for incidents attended since January 2009 (which details about that incident including location), plus a dataset which details of every fire engine (pumping appliance) sent to an incident. These datasets are updated on a monthly basis.
