Keeping safe

There has been an increase in the number of incidents the service attends. In 2017/18 it dealt with more than 6000 emergency calls which is a 20% rise on the previous year or 1052 more emergency calls. While there has been a rise in the number of fires and automatic fire alarm calls the most significant increase has been in the number of special service calls (including rescues, medical incidents, assisting other agencies, flooding and road traffic collisions).
