London Fire Brigade

150th anniversary

We're England's busiest fire and rescue service, the busiest metropolitan fire and rescue service in the UK and one of the largest firefighting organisations in the world.

The Brigade provides services across the whole of the Greater London area, serving the capital's residents as well as those who work in and visit the city.
In 2014, the number of fires was below 20,000 for the first time since records for Greater London began in 1966 and fire deaths have steadily declined since the 1980s.

Keeping Londoners safe

This section looks at how the Brigade has improved over the last 150 years and how it continues to ensure Londoners are safer than ever.
