The 54 fire authorities in England and Wales deal with almost 1 million incidents a year. They employ some 54,500 staff and cost around #l.25 billion a year. Whilst the fire service is justifiably proud of its record in responding to fires, could the numbers of fires, fire deaths and injuries be reduced? Can brigades maintain their performance as they come under increasing financial pressure? These and other key issues are addressed in the Audit Commission's fire study on value for money in the fire service. Two other reports accompany this management handbook. They are: "In the Line of Fire: Value for Money in the Fire Service - The National Picture", ISBN 0-11-886404-1 and "In the Line of Fire: Value for Money in the Fire Service Executive Briefing", ISBN 0-11-886405-X.
