Critical Fires

Critical Incidents are defined as incidents that are likely to involve a significant threat to life, structures or the environment.

Critical Incidents do not include responses to Automated Fire Alarm actuation or premises from which a suspected malicious call has been made. They are further sub-divided into Critical Incident Fire and Critical Incident Special Service.

To find out more about Critical Fires please visit our website on the subject and how West Sussex targets its resources to manage these.

The top chart displays the number of Critical Fires recorded within West Sussex each month since April 2014 and runs to date.
The two related measure graphs below it show the performance measures West Sussex have in meeting Attendance Standards to these fires with our fire appliances.

For more information on the performance against these two measures please see their dedicated tiles on the main page.
