Residential Fire Rate of Death and Injury

Continuing vigilance is required to ensure fire and life safety in Surrey's residential communities. This indicator establishes the casualty (including deaths and injuries) rate of residential fires per 1,000 population. As a leading indicator of fire risk in residential communities, it helps to determine the level and focus of fire prevention responses in the City. The desired reduction in the residential fire rate of death and injury in the City is a positive outcome of a targeted and sustained fire prevention program, and the City aims to maintain or decrease the rate of fire death and injury. This indicator is also a performance measure for the Public Safety Strategy.
