The number of fire-related fatalities in England has been on a general downward trend since 1981/82, when comparable figures first became available, but have plateaued in recent years.
Fire services have the resources to do their work. In 2019/2020, fire and rescue services will receive approximately £2.3bn in funding. At March 2018 the standalone Fire and Rescue Authorities held £545 million in reserves, equivalent to 42 percent of the core spending power.
