A request for information about fleet list – 18155
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 4th November
Please find below a summary of our findings.
The Fire Authority is requested to provide a list of motor vehicles operated (owned or leased) currently licensed with the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Authority (“the DVLA”). Please include the following details.
- Registration Mark of each motor vehicle;
- Fleet number allocated (if any);
- Chassis Make and Model;
- Type of Body fitted;
- Date new or date of acquisition.
File attachments using Excel, Word, PDF or plain text are acceptable
Please see attached. 18155
Please note information related to registration and fleet numbers is exempt under Section 38 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as disclosing this information is likely to endanger individual fire service personnel. These identifiers specifically identify individual resources that may respond to incidents related to community resilience or counter terrorism with other agencies. By publishing registration could expose vulnerabilities in resilience arrangements and thus endanger fire-fighter safety. It is acknowledged that these could be collected by the requester visiting each station separately but this would require significant effort on behalf of the requester.
If you have any queries about this Freedom of Information request, 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
