I’m writing to make a request under the FOI act regarding the incidents WMFS attends. Specifically the totals attended by each station, broken down into types of incidents i.e.

STATION                 FIRES                 SSC            ALARMS          TOTAL

FIRES – both secondary and primary

SSC – special service calls including road traffic collisions

Alarms – automatic fire alarms, false alarm malicious and false alarm equipment

Secondly could I have the total numbers of incidents each appliance attended i.e.
