How many false alarms did Brussels firefighters have to deal with in 2016?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 02/05/2018

Answer: 3,079

Firefighters in the Brussels-Capital Region received 3,079 false alarms in 2016, which is more than 8 a day on average.

Almost all these false alarms are considered well-meaning: only 2.5 % of them are apparently the result of ill intent.
