The bulletin covers the period 2008-09 to 2010-11 and provides the latest annual in-depth analysis of fire incidents attended by Welsh Fire and Rescue Services. Analysis includes details on location, cause, motive, casualties and false alarms attended.
The key points from the latest release are:

- The number of primary fires in Wales decreased by 3* per cent over the year from 7,000 in 2008-09 to 6,800 in 2009-10. A further decrease of 8 per cent was seen in 2010-11.
- There were 23 fatal casualties from fires in Wales in 2009-10 compared with 17 in 2008-09. In 2010-11 there were 20 fatalities.
- The number of non-fatal casualties from fires was 575 in 2009-10 and rising to 580 in 2010-11.
- In 2009-10 there were 16,900 false fire alarms in Wales, down from 18,900 in 2008-09. The number of false alarms in 2010-11 stayed at around 16,900.
- The number of malicious false fire alarms decreased 36 per cent between 2008 09 and 2009-10. By 2010-11 there was a further decrease of 15 per cent to 760.
- In 41 per cent of the 2,200 fires in dwellings in Wales in 2009-10, no smoke alarm was installed. This proportion fell to 36 per cent of the 2,000 dwelling fires in 2010-11.
