Based on the Commissioner's draft plan published in January 2013, 40 wards currently within the 1st appliance 6 minute target will go outside the target joining the 267 wards that are currently performing outside target. No ward outside of the 1st appliance target would come within it.

Under the Commissioner's revised plan, published for the LFEPA meeting on 18 July, 36 wards currently within the 1st appliance 6 minute target would fall outside the 1st appliance target of 6 minutes.
