Response


Just a quick explanation before we go into the figures, the only rescues we record at non fires are RTC extrications and they are recorded by vehicle not people extricated.

  1. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there were 13 people rescued from fires with injuries
  2. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there were 14 people rescued from fires unharmed
  3. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there 3307 fires with 27 of these resulting in rescue
  4. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there were 162 vehicles that required extrication
  5. We only record rescues from fires and RTCs and with RTCs if someone is trapped in their vehicle following an RTC we have made the assumption that they are in some way injured or have received medical attention from the ambulance service. 
  6. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there were 162 vehicles which required people extricating from within them.
  7. Between 1/4/2014 and 31/3/2015 there were a total of 10658 incidents, 189 of these resulted in people being rescued.
