    1. Purpose of Report

    1.1 The purpose of this report is to provide members of Dumfries and Galloway Police & Fire Sub

    Committee (PFSC) with an update in respect of Scottish Fire and Rescue activity within Dumfries and

    Galloway and how this activity measured against agreed priorities for the period 1st April 2017 to 30th

    September 2017.

    2. Background

    2.1 On the 1st April 2013, the eight former Fire & Rescue Services within Scotland merged to form a

    new single Fire & Rescue Service. A key requirement of the new legislation encompassing the single

    Service is the production of a Local Area Plan aligned to Local Authority boundaries (subject to the

    approval of the Local Authority) and to provide periodical reports as to progress against the Key

    Priorities within the Plan.

    3. Review of Performance 2014-15

    3.1 The current Local Area Plan for Dumfries and Galloway contains seven Key Priorities and are

    summarised as;

    Local Risk Management and Preparedness

    Reduction of Dwelling Fires

    Reduction of Fire Casualties and Fatalities

    Reduction of Deliberate Fire Setting

    Reduction of Fires in Non-Domestic Properties

    Reduction in Road Traffic Collisions

    Reduction of Unwanted Fire Signals

    3.2 From these seven Key Priorities, performance indicators were devised and incorporated into the

    Local Area Plan. A summary of this report with associated activity levels and comments for each of the

    performance indicator areas is included within this report.

    Commentary

    Deliberate Primary Fires remain a key priority for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in Dumfries &

    Galloway. These deliberate fires cause extensive damage to domestic and commercial property as well

    as to vehicles and street furniture.

    Quarters 1 and 2 reported 20 deliberate primary fires and is similar to previous reporting periods.

    However, the trend within the current six months is showing a downward turn with 16 of the 20 deliberate

    primary fires occuring during April, May and June. The remaining 3 months of the 6 month reporting

    period saw only 4 deliberate primary fires reported. Further examination of the 6 month period shows no

    corelation between incidents with most being small in nature. However, a fire at an unoccupied house in

    Castle Douglas during April caused serious damage and was subject to investigation by Police Scotland.

    A number of small fires (Some in Q4 2016/17) at the former Gates/Interfloor factory in Heathhall resulted

    in a multi agency approach to lessen risk within the site and secure the site from further deliberate fires.

    No further incidents have been reported at the former factory since April.

    The Service will continue with its long running education programmes for P6 pupils with school visits.

    The Service working in partnership with other agencies also delivered Operation Safety to over 1500 P7

    children throughout the region outlining the dangers of fire and consequences of fire setting.

    Commentary

    This includes fires in refuse, grass and other fires out in the open. The first six months has seen a

    significant drop from the same reporting period last year by more than 20%. It is also encouraging to see

    that fires recorded in the first quarter of the reporting period dropped by more than 50% in the second

    quarter which also incorporates school summer holidays.This positive result consolidates the impression

    that anti-social behaviour across Dumfries & Galloway is being effectively challenged and dealt with. A

    large spike in May was investigated but no single cause was identified with fires following a distribution

    similar to previous years.

    The majority of fires within the region occur between 15:00 and 22:00 however, no pattern exists for what

    day these incidents occur. Of the 52 deliberate secondary fires reported in Dumfries and Galloway during

    the first six months of 2017/18, 35 of these fires occured in the North West Dumfries area with the

    remainder being scattered evenly around the region and mostly within urban areas. No specific areas

    within North West Dumfries were identified as being 'hot-spots', attracting more than any other location.

    Working with our partners in the Police we will continue to try and identify all incidents of deliberate fire

    setting and offer deliberate fire setting intervention as required. Continued engagement between

    Community Policing, Community Safety Officers and the SFRS will allow for local interpretation and

    identification of hotspots.

    The Service will continue to work with partnership agencies in the region to engage with local

    communities.
