Brechin Community Campus Fire

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Angus Council,

I understand that a fire took place at Brechin Community Campus on the 18th March 2016 which required portable extinguishers to be used. I understand the extent of the damage was limited to 2 floors.

I would be very grateful to get cost data associated with the direct
damage to the building, as well as the indirect costs associated with the
incident such as bus and transport costs to ship students to different
schools; temporary equipment costs; staffing costs incurred from managing
the crisis, and the costs associated with the provision of temporary
facilities.

Yours faithfully,

Grete Wilson

FriedrichM,

Dear Ms Wilson

 

Request for Information

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 24 November 2018
(received by the Council on 26 November 2018) which has been passed to me
for attention. 

 

You have requested the following information:

 

I understand that a fire took place at Brechin Community Campus on the
18th March 2016 which required portable extinguishers to be used. I
understand the extent of the damage was limited to 2 floors.

 

I would be very grateful to get cost data associated with the direct
damage to the building, as well as the indirect costs associated with the
incident such as bus and transport costs to ship students to different
schools; temporary equipment costs; staffing costs incurred from managing
the crisis, and the costs associated with the provision of temporary
facilities.

 

In terms of s 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 I would
advise that the council does not hold the information you are requesting
in recorded format.  With regard to indirect costs I should further
explain that we do not record the detail of information you have
requested. 

 

In order to be more helpful to you, your enquiry has been discussed with
the relevant services:

 

It is believed that your request refers to a Marcaddy cable reel in a
classroom which had not been fully unwound and consequently caused a large
heat build-up on the reel.  The incident occurred over a few hours and was
confined to a small area.  I have been advised that the school was
evacuated and checked by Scottish Fire & Rescue before the building could
be re-entered.

 

·         There were no bus and transport costs;

·         All Marcaddy reels were replaced by the contractor at no cost to
the council.

 

I hope that this information is of some help to you. Please note that the
information contained in this reply is believed to be accurate as of
today's date (unless otherwise indicated) but no warranty is given.
Further, Angus Council does not accept liability for any loss, injury or
damage which arises from the use of the information contained in this
reply either by you or by any other party. Please refer to the information
set out below which explains your right to complain if you are unhappy
with how the Council has dealt with your request. If you have any queries,
please contact me on 01307 476246 or e-mail
[1][Angus Council request email]

 

Yours sincerely

 

Martin Friedrich
