The Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) in England and Wales increasingly works alongside the police and other partners to promote safer communities – a key part of which involves tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB). Although definitions of ASB differ and are contested, a number of behaviours considered to be anti-social impact on the FRS and could be termed Fire and Rescue Service-related anti-social behaviour (FRASB). However, fire presents a singular force for damage, injury and death, and as such the particularity of fire has implications for the inclusion of fire-related behaviours within ASB at all. This discussion article aims to present a typology of FRASB, in order to inform debate around practical applications so that police and FRSs can be better equipped to respond to and measure this range of behaviours. An additional objective is of raising the profile of the FRS within this area of work.
