WMFS OFFICIAL – NEW – FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST – FOI23126 

Ref: FOI/23126 

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 

whether there are records held for this location (Vaughan Trading Estate, Sedgley Road East, TIPTON, DY4) that would indicate if there were fire suppressant systems at the site prior to the current use, specifically any fire systems using suppressant chemicals 

Reply 

We have no information relating directly to DPD confirming if it has sprinklers or any other form of automatic fire suppression system fitted. There is a consult which was approved by a former member of staff, the two other consultations he refers to are for unit construction but have no information as on final use as they have no tenant information and are just for the construction of the shell of the building. We cannot confirm if either are the DPD building.  

Request 

Have you any records of fire events at the site? The time horizon would be anything from the 1950s onwards. 

Reply 

There are three fire incidents at this location on our system: 

22/9/2010 – Fire 

04/03/2013 – Fire 

29/03/2013 – Fire 

Please note we only hold data from 2009 onwards.
