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 further to your freedom of information request. 

Please find below a summary of our findings. 

Request 

I notice Fallings Park, Billesley and ward end now have red BRV’s will these be the new standard colour? 

Reply 

The 3 BRV’s that are red in colour are vehicles that have been replaced due to accident damage and have been painted Red. There are no plans to change the colour of the remaining BRV fleet. 
 

Request 


please can you advise from 1st August 2023 what stations will be having their BRV/PRL/HP replaced? 

Reply 

As from the 1st of August 2023 there are no plans to replace either BRV’S or HP. There are 6 PRL’S due replacement and the following Stations have been earmarked: 

Highgate 

Wolverhampton 

Bournbrook 

Coventry 

Walsall 

Stourbridge 

Request 
 
also with sheldon’s high volume support van it’s 2008 is there a reason why this has not been replaced as it is very outdated and the paintwork is non exsisent.
