New fire stations have been brought into operation either as replacements, or as additions to existing fire stations. An attempt has been made to measure the effectiveness of these changes in sixteen County Boroughs. Monthly mean attendance times at fires in buildings have been examined over a period of years both before and after the re-siting for each brigade. If the trend in attendance times over the whole period examined remained constant, the data have been analysed to determine whether a significant shift in the trend line took place at the time of the change.
