We are always keen to hear from our local communities, so have your say and get involved in our current consultation(s):

Unwanted Fire Signals (False Alarm Calls)

We are currently running a consultation to explore ways in which false alarm calls to non-residential properties can be reduced.

Background

In 2018/19, we received 535 calls to non-residential premises where no fire existed; Unwanted Fire Signals (false alarms) accounted for 6% of total emergency calls and resulted in the mobilisation of fire engines over 1,100 times.
