Dear Mr Smith Freedom of Information Request
Thank you for your request for information.
Your request has been processed in accordance with Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
The response is as follows –
Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) does not hold the requested information in the manner
requested. SFRS have in-house Fleet team who repair our vehicles. I have discussed this request with
various departments and we do not record repairs as vandalism therefore section 17(1)(b) of Scotland
Act 2002 notice that information not held is applicable.
In line with the terms of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
has in place a procedure by which a review of the way in which we handle requests for information can be
carried out. If you are dissatisfied by the way Scottish Fire and Rescue Service have dealt with your
request or about any decision made by them in connection with your request, and wish a review to be
carried out, please inform me of this by 6 March 2018. In doing so, it would be helpful if you could state
the matter, which has given rise to your dissatisfaction. Staff not involved in the original decision will
handle any review.
Should you not be satisfied with the outcome of our review, you will then have the right to appeal to the
Scottish Information Commissioner within 6 months. The Commissioner will decide whether your request
has been dealt with properly, in accordance with the Act.
