This study provides an analysis of all hoarding and squalor incidents reported by the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board and the Country Fire Authority from 3 April 2012 to 3 April 2015. We uncovered common characteristics of affected individuals, trends in risk indicators, and explored the fire dynamics of hoarding situations. The results of this study aim to increase operational knowledge of MFB and CFA firefighters when responding to incidents associated with hoarding and squalor.
