Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 1 Hansard (17 February) . . Page.. 426..


Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1 & 2) The ACT Fire Brigade reports performance against response times to structure fires (50th and 90th percentile), structure fires confined to room of origin and determination of cause of fire in the Canberra community. The performance against targets is reported each year in the Department's Annual Report.

The table below provides information regarding performance against actual targets rather than individual calls (that is, where multiple calls are received for the same incident only one contact is counted to determine the response time). The number of incidents attended by the ACT Fire Brigade was:

* 2006-2007: 10681 incidents;

* 2007-2008: 10412 incidents;

* 2008-2009: 10521 incidents;

* 2009-2010: 11130 incidents and

* 2010-2011 (to 30 November 2011): 4,643 incidents
