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 5th June 2019.

Please find below a summary of our findings.

Request

Could you please provide me with a list of each of your stations and the total number of all calls from 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2018.

Reply

This is the number of unique incident number attended by each station in 2018: if 2 appliances from the same station attended the same incident, it counts once against that station; if 2 appliances from different stations attend the same incident, it counts once against each station.

The break down provided missed out some incident types, Incident types have been grouped into Fires, false alarms (including FAE, but also FAG and FAM) and special service calls (including RTCs).
