Hi,

From the time a call is received of an incidence of fire, is there a national stated response time or an average time that crews will arrive by at the scene?

This explains that national response times were abolished in 2003

If you search for 'integrated risk management plan' and your local fire service name you should find yours.

London's response times are here

And the gov't publishes stats here

This is an example of mapping response times across postcodes

When looking at this kind of thing you need to be carful. The time that an appliance arrives at a scene isn't the same as the time that fire-fighters enter the building/apply water.

In 30-odd years working in fire safety, having worked on the design of all sorts of buildings (some of National and International importance), I have never needed to know what the fire brigade response time to any of them was. 

Purely as a matter of interest - why do you need to know?

Sometimes gets used for assessing insurance risks - all a bit dodgy but you're more likely to get a firefighter turning up in a city centre than in nucklefrumpton

Dealt with a MOD aircraft parts storage facility once. The tendering process required them to be within a 10 minute attendance time for the police and fire service.
