Critical Fire Risk Map

Learn how West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service targets its resources for critical incidents.

As a service West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service has to understand and identify how it should manage its resources.

We learn from incidents we have responded to and analyse how and why incidents have occurred. We also use the local knowledge of our firefighters and officers, along with the latest modelling software, demographic profiling, census data and information from our partner agencies.

All of this information is pulled together in the Critical Fire Risk Map attached below, which is updated annually based on rolling data from the previous three years. Most of the county is classified as low or medium risk. Where small pockets of high or very high risk is identified we can target our resources in proportion to those needs.
