RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST
I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 17th September 2017.
Please find below a summary of our findings.
If information exists, please provide data on annual station call-outs from 2000/01 through 2014/15. If this time frame is too extensive please provide data as far back as possible. If also possible, please break down figures by fires, false alarms and special services however this is not essential. Each station total should be the total number of responses per year by that station regardless of station ground or appliance.
Please see attached
Please note the attached It includes annual callouts, filtered by incident type and first attending station. It covers the last five years (April 2011 to March 2016). The reason why we have not provided information for the full request is due to changing of call signs information, changes stations and stations ground. To gather all the information would take many hours and would exceed the time of 18 hours recommended by ICO and therefore would have to charge for the rest of the information requested.
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[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
