Dear Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 with the following request:

Please could tell me how many incidents at commercial properties you have been called to since January 1st 2019 to the present day where the property was deemed unsafe to immediately re-enter following the incident.

In addition, if the cost of doing so would not exceed the limitations set out in Section 12 of the Act, please provide the cause of the incident and the reason for blocking re-entry to the property (i.e. Cause: Fire - Reason: building structurally weakened)

Yours faithfully,

Dan Rawle

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI)/Environmental Information
Regulations (EIR) request - Reference FOI-101004690985. In normal
circumstances we will provide a response within 20 working days of
receiving your request. There may be a small number of occasions where we
may need to extend the 20 working day deadline. We will inform you if this
is likely.

Cornwall Council is made up of many different services and additionally,
wholly owned companies who are responsible for areas such as housing and
highways. Your request will be logged by the Central FOI team and in most
cases will be forwarded on to the relevant service or wholly owned company
to respond directly.

There may be some instances where we will need to contact you in the order
to clarify parts of your request. In this instance we will not be able to
progress your request until clarification has been received.

Under the Act, we will be unable able to process any request where the
actual cost to the authority in terms of staff hours comes to more than
£450. If this is the case we will help you to narrow the request to take
it under any cost limit. In a small number of other cases, a charge may
apply such as with certain environmental information, but we will let you
know if this applies.

We deal with around 2000 FOI/EIR requests for information each year, with
the cost to the Council (not to the customer) ranging between £25 and £450
per request. You may be able to find the information by checking previous
responses on our [1]Disclosure Log, the Council's Publication Scheme, or

Dear Fire and Community Safety - Freedom of Information Mail,

Thank you for your response. In terms of the types of properties, I am looking for commercial properties of all types. In other words, any site which is used for providing products and services to businesses and the general public. If it would not exceed the limitations outlined in Section 12 of the FOI Act 2000, it would be great to get details of the types of commercial properties involved in each incident.

Many thanks,
Dan Rawle

Dear Fire and Community Safety - Freedom of Information Mail,
