RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST
West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information requested on 2nd July 2019
Please find below a summary of our findings.
Please could you provide an up to date fleetlist containing the following information.
All operational vehicles
Where the vehicle is based
Please see attached.
Information related to call signs has been excluded as it 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 call signs 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 us. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
