Freedom of Information requests have retrieved the response times for Fire Brigades in London. 

You can see a nifty interactive map of each brigade’s response time at the link below.

The Financial Times report:

Two Conservative-led London councils have joined opposition to mayor Boris Johnson’s plan to close or shrink fire stations in their boroughs as part of £48m in budget cuts over two years.

This interactive map shows the speed with London Fire Brigade can currently respond to incidents at the most detailed level ever published.

Using the Freedom of Information Act, the Financial Times obtained data on nearly 500,000 incidents that the London Fire Brigade has responded to since introducing its current incident management system in November 2008.
