Ref: FOI/16110


I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 20th August 2016.

Please find below a summary of our findings.


I would like information regarding your HP’s.

If a station has a HP such as Highgate, Oldbury and Coventry is there two specific firefighters for the HP? Or do fire fighters from PRL go in the HP and reduce numbers in PRL?


The HP is not crewed by dedicated staff. If the HP is required then Firefighters move from the PRL to the HP i.e. dual crewing. The PRL will still be available to respond to emergency incidents.

If you have any queries about this email, please contact me.  Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications. If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision please write to The Public Relations Department, West Midlands Fire Service, 99 Vauxhall Road, Birmingham, B7 4HW
