Published 26 October 2017
Last updated 9 August 2018 + show all updates
  1. Since the publication of Fire and rescue workforce and pensions statistics: England April 2016 to March 2017 on 26 October 2017 two fire and rescue authorities (Bedfordshire and Greater London) have provided amended figures on workforce and diversity. The Greater London change increases the total full time equivalent staff figure. This revision has been made in line with our published revisions policy. The change affecting the diversity information about staff in Bedfordshire is more minor, but was made for convenience at the same time. The relevant tables were revised on 3 April 2018. These amendments have resulted in total workforce numbers (full time equivalent) and diversity of new joiner figures in the release also being updated for consistency.
  2. Added 'Statistics on the number of incidents involving an attack on firefighters: England, April 2016 to March 2017' and 'Pre-release access to: Statistics on the number of incidents involving an attack on firefighters: England, April 2016 to March 2017'.
