Critical Fire Risk Map

How West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service target resources for critical incidents.

As a service, we have to understand and identify how to manage our resources.

We learn from incidents we have responded to and analyse how and why they 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 partners. We pull all this information into a Critical Fire Risk Map.

The map 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 are identified we can target our resources in proportion to those needs.
