Joint Fire Research Organization, 1960. PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF FIRE REPORTS FROM FIRE BRIGADES IN GREAT BRITAIN, 1959. Fire Research Notes 421
The results of a preliminary analysis of reports show that during 1959 the Fire Brigades attended approximately 215 400 fires in England and Wales and approximately 13 500 in Scotland. The number of incidents attended by each Fire Brigade is given in Table 1. In England and Wales, no member of the Fire Service was killed; approximately 300 firemen were injured. The Fire Service assisted in the rescue of approximately 310 persons from dangerous situations. In Scotland no member of the Fire Service was killed; approximately 30 were injured. The Fire Service assisted in rescuing approximately 40 persons from dangerous situations. Further details are given in Tables 2 and 3. The unusually large number of calls received during 1959 has caused some delay in reporting so that there are still reports outstanding from some Brigades. As a result of this the figures given in Tables 2 and 3 may be subject to rather more revision than usual for the final analysis.
