Incident reports and fire investigation reports

As a public service Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service maintains complete transparency with the public. 

The Authority or its Officers reserve the right to refuse any request made for a Special 'non-emergency' Service.

Abstract Incident Record report (IRS)

You can request an Abstract Incident Record Report using the form below. For Fire Investigation Reports please use the Fire Investigation form.

An Abstract Incident Record Report can be provided to Housing Associations, Solicitors, Insurance/Claims Companies and Owners/Occupiers of properties affected. Upon receipt of your request, you will be contacted and advised of the appropriate fee (if applicable), the payment methods available and if a Form of Authority/evidence of residency is required.

We use our Incident Recording System (IRS) to retrieve data to produce the Abstract Incident Record Report. It should be noted that in providing information from official reports Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service accepts no legal responsibility for the accuracy of its suppositions and conclusions which are compiled primarily for its own guidance and statistical information.
