London Fire Brigade is the busiest fire and rescue service in the country and one of the largest firefighting and rescue organisations in the world.

This dataset contains the details of every fire engine (pumping appliance) sent to an incident since January 2009. Information is provided for the appliance mobilised, where it was deployed from and the times recorded for arriving at the incident.

Due to the size of this dataset it is split into two parts:

  • 01/01/2009 - 31/12/2012
  • 01/01/2013 - end of previous month

Also available are all LFB incident records since January 2009.

This data about the incidents attended by the London Fire Brigade includes the fire station area where the incident happened; the fire station area is currently used for mobilising and other administrative purposes.

On 9 January 2014, ten London fire stations were closed as part of the Authority’s Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5), and fire station areas were changed to reflect these closures with the station areas of closed stations being distributed to adjacent fire station areas.

To provide consistent incident data, stations grounds have been changed for all incidents in this data set and reflect the station areas in use since 9th January 2014.
