London Fire Brigade Merton
What we do
As well as dealing with fires and other emergencies, we enforce fire safety laws, give advice about fire safety and carry out various emergency-planning activities.
We want to reduce the number of fires, deaths, injuries and false alarm calls.
If we are going to achieve this our resources must be directed where the fires happen. Our plans must concentrate on where they will have the greatest opportunity to reduce the risk of fire. We must measure our performance so we can see how well we are doing. Our budget is based on our estimated spending and forms part of the GLA's consolidated budget for the year.
