Reference No: 030/2014
Request Date: 11/03/2014
I would like the response standards to primary fires/FDR1's, for every single Fire Service in England.
I do not require figures on response times just the standard which the Service set, in terms of how many appliances (and number of crew on each, if applicable) and how many minutes for the 1st and 2nd attendance, this may be on a percentage of occasions and dependant on risk area.
For an Incident to be measured against our response standards it has to meet the following criteria:
When both of the above criteria are met then several other factors are taken into consideration to determine the risk of the incident
After this a response time is applied:
1st Pump - within 8 minutes
2nd Pump - within 13 minutes
1st Pump - within 10 minutes
2nd Pump - within 15 minutes
1st Pump - within 18 minutes
2nd Pump - within 23 minutes
There is no set standard for crew numbers.
