The Home Office collected information on the number of staff employed by Fire and Rescue Services for fire safety activities for the first time in 2019.

The information can be found in FS10 in FIRE1204 (link below). This showed that in England on 31 March 2019 there were 72 fire engineers (Full Time Equivalent) employed by FRSs, 503 staff competent to carry out a short audit, 951 competent to carry out an audit, 597 competent to serve an enforcement notice and 407 competent to serve a prohibition notice.

As FRS staff are likely to be competent to carry out more than one of these activities, the categories are not mutually exclusive.
