Incident reports

Following an incident, including fires, special service calls and false alarms, the Service will complete an incident report. The report provides details on the incident which includes resources used, action taken by the Service and, where appropriate, damage specifics and information on the cause.

Where a more serious incident occurs or where the cause cannot immediately be established, a fire investigation is conducted and if required a fire investigation report is completed.

The cost for a copy of an incident report is £97.15.  The preferred and most efficient method of payment is via bank transfer but we also accept cheques.

Please note, we cannot release the incident report until payment has been received.

Please complete our incident report request form.

Once you have completed our online form, an invoice will be issued for the amount of £97.15

  • If paying by bank transfer, instructions and our bank account details can be found on your invoice
  • Should you wish to pay your invoice by cheque, it should be made out to Northamptonshire Commissioner Fire and Rescue Authority at the following address:

Service Information Team
Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service
Darby House
Darby Close

Please note: all cheques must be accompanied by a cover letter quoting the invoice number supplied. Failure to include this information will significantly delay issuing the report.

The information on the incident report is primarily collated for statistical purposes. Details of the cause of fire are based on the Incident Commander’s initial impressions and selected from a limited range of options available, which may or may not cover the exact circumstances of each case.
