RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST
West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information requested on 15th April 2019
Please find below a summary of our findings.
We are seeking a list or database of installed gas appliances, categorised into groups such as:
- Boilers – condensing/non-condensing, wet central heating systems
- Water Heaters – instantaneous, continuous, storage water heaters
- Dry (Warm Air) Convection Systems – direct/indirect air heaters
- Radiant Heaters – luminous (plaque) and non-luminous (tube)
- Ovens – deck ovens, pizza ovens, rack ovens
- Steamers & Combi Ovens – combi-steam ovens, atmospheric steamers
- Hobs & Grills – hobs, grills, griddles, barbecues, salamander grills, rotisserie grills
- Water & Oil Heaters – fryers, pasta/noodle boilers, bratt pans
For each appliance, it would be useful to know the output rating, in either kW or BTU/hr, and the installed date.
We are also looking to know the facility/facility type in which each appliance is found – if possible, the specific facility name and/or address.
We wish to obtain as recent data as is possible – ideally from 2018 or 2019. However, any data from proceeding years which could present market trends would also be favourable.
This information is exempt under section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as we do not hold a list or database of installed gas appliances. However we do publish incident information where the mentioned appliance has been the cause.
Incident data can be found on the link below.
