I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 26th November 2018.

Please find below a summary of our findings.


I would like to request information on all fire and rescue incidents over the past 5 years. If available, could this contain date and time of individual incidents, building type or other fire type, location (lat, long and/or post code), as well as number of hoses used or equivalent if possible. Could this information be made available in electronic format: excel or csv if possible.

For hose usage, please refer to columns U (hosereel) and V (main jet).
