Dear James Stevens,
Please see below response to your information request.
Our response plans depend on the information provided on receipt of an emergency call, this is known as a pre-determined attendance. An example of this would be a building fire where we would dispatch two fire engines, if there were reports of people at risk then we would add an additional fire engine. If there were reports of hazardous materials involved then we would also send one of our Environmental Protection Unit.
Reference British Sugar having their own fire cover, that is a question for them to answer not for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service as this is not a requirement of ours, and therefore, any such arrangements are their own.
