Crimmins, Jean, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service

Dear Mr Carroll,

Apologies in having to e mail you again.

With regard to your request below, could you please clarify the following?

• What year/s do you want the information for?
• In Q2, what do you mean by SMT? We don't have a group by that title and all the ranks mentioned in your request are not in the Strategic Leadership Team. SLT is the CFO, DCFO, ACFO, Area Managers and non-uniformed Directors.
• In Q5, the Fire Support Network no longer exists and when it did it was a separate organisation to MFRA. Please confirm if you still want the information for FSD, which is part of MFRA.

Upon receipt of clarification, we will then continue to process your request.

Kind regards,

Jean Crimmins
