World Fire Statistics Magazine, 2017. downloadable here on CTIF.org.

This CTIF Working Group gathers data from fires world wide and collects them in PDF format reports; “World Fire Statistics”, in English, German and Russian.

All statistical data presented in the reports were obtained from responses to the requests of the Fire Statistics Center and as well as from published official statistical reports of various countries.

The data of past years are corrected in accordance with the specification of information.

When comparing statistics of countries and cities, it is necessary to keep in the mind that every country has own rules for reporting fires, fire deaths and fire injures, which change from time to time.

The report's authors are always grateful for any suggestions to improve the work of the Center of Fire Statistics.
