Methodological note

The firefighter statistics and types of services that they perform come from two different sources. On one hand, the statistics come from the firefighting activity complied by the Government of Catalonia, which are published in detail in its annual report in a summary within the Ministry of Home Affairs' Annual Report. On the other hand, the data of the services of the corps of firefighters of the Barcelona City Council is compiled in the Statistical Yearbook of the City of Barcelona.

The data is presented on an annual basis.
