If a fire took hold in your home, how long would you have to wait for the Fire Brigade to arrive?

As it carries out a consultation on plans to close 12 fire stations, the London Fire Brigade has released response times for all of the neighbourhoods in London

The document compares the current response times with predictions for how long it would take after the station closures, in addition to listing the number of fires in each area over the last two years.

You can read the full document on the London Fire Brigade website.
