The number of near miss fire incidents.

A near miss fire incident is defined as an incident involving only smoke, without flames, which may or may not cause damage.

Examples of near miss fire incidents include:

  • some cooking incidents, which are restricted to burnt food, pans boiling dry, etc. generating smoke but no flames and/or damage but prompts occupants to operate a call point or actuation of the fire alarm,
  • an overheating fluorescent tube capacitor causing sufficient smoke to prompt occupants to operate a call point, but with virtually no damage occurring beyond the capacitor.

Fires are catergorised by their cause and not their type. An overloaded socket caused fire damage to a building should be recorded as an electrical fire.

Exclude those occuring in space not managed by the HEP.
