Freedom of Information Act & Data Protection Requests, Avon Fire and Rescue

1 Atodiad

Dear Mr Smith

 

I write in response to your request for information dated 06.07.2016
regarding Avon Fire & Rescue Service’s IT Server Maintenance information.

 

I can confirm that your request for information has been dealt with under
the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and that AF&RS
holds the information that you require.

 

Please therefore find our answers (in blue type) to your original
questions which are below.

 

Please kindly note that we are unable to provide some of the information
relating to our IT operating systems and software under Section 31 Law
Enforcement - ‘S31(1)(a) – disclosure would be likely to prejudice
prevention or detection of crime’ of the FOIA. AF&RS are applying this
exemption in order to protect the Service and wider society from potential
crime and its consequences, should the publishing of information regarding
how we operate and protect our IT systems fall into the hands of those
with malicious intent. As a major emergency service provider, we must
ensure that our systems are appropriately protected and by releasing such
data may compromise our ability to do that.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidance states that:

 

‘There is a clear public interest in protecting society from the impact of
crime. The greater the potential for a disclosure to result in crime, the
greater the public interest in maintaining the exemption. The victims of
crime can be both organisations and individuals. Although there is a
public interest in protecting both, there is a greater public interest in
protecting individuals from the impact of crime. ‘

 

Exemption S31 is also subject to the public interest test. This means that
we must consider whether the public interest in releasing the information
outweighs the public interest in refusing to disclose. We have considered
that it is in the interest of the majority of the public to protect our IT
systems from potential harm in order to support us to ensure public
safety. We have also decided that the likelihood of damage to our systems
need not be immediate as the impact would, in an emergency situation, be
potentially serious.

 

We also considered whether release of this information is in the public
interest in terms of explaining our decisions, ensuring accountability, or
providing transparency into our handling of public finances. We have
concluded that the detail of this information is not necessary to meet the
public interest or reassure public concerns. As a result, we have decided
that the public interest is better served by not disclosing this detailed
information.

 

Further information relating to FOIA exemptions can be found on the ICO
website via the below link:

 

[1]https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gui...

 

I trust that you will understand our reasons for withholding certain IT
information and hope that the information that we have provided below is
useful to you.

 

For your information:

‘Bluelight’ e-tendering system

Protection Officer, Avon Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters, Temple Back,
Bristol, BS1 6EU, telephone 0117 9262061, or by emailing

Dear Mr Smith

 

I write in response to your request for information dated 28.06.2016
concerning Avon Fire & Rescue Service’s fleet lists.

 

Your request for information has been dealt with under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and I can confirm that Avon Fire &
Rescue Service holds some of the information falling within the
description specified within your request.

 

Fleet Lists

 

AF&RS publish its fleet lists on our website, which you can download via
the following link
[1]http://www.avonfire.gov.uk/guide-to-publ...
Please note that at present our fleet is undergoing some changes, so
unfortunately we are unable to provide up to date fleet lists and once
complete, we will post the updated version on the website. For this
reason, AF&RS are applying FOIA exemption S22 ‘Information intended for
future publication’ regarding this part of your request.  I have made a
note to contact you once the new fleet lists are available.   The version
posted on the website is as at January/February 2016. 

 

In addition, historical information regarding total number of vehicles for
each Fire & Rescue Service in England can be found on the ‘The Department
of Communities and Local Government (DCLG)’ website, who publish an annual
operational statistics bulletin
[2]https://www.gov.uk/government/collection....

 

Call Signs

Avon Fire & Rescue Service do not publish vehicle or officer call signs. 
Please appreciate that as an emergency service, we must ensure that our
capability to provide a service, the health, welfare and safety of our
staff and the communities in which we serve, are not compromised in any
way.  By releasing (and should the publishing of) such operational
information (and also in such a comprehensive list), together with any
other data that may already be in the public domain, may compromise our
ability to protect the Service and wider society from potential crime and
its consequences.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service are therefore withholding information in
relation to vehicle and officer call signs under FOIA S31 exemption for
‘disclosure would be likely to prejudice prevention or detection of crime’
as it is relevant to the potential risks that we face if information about
how we operate would fall into the hands of those with malicious intent.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidance states that:

 

‘There is a clear public interest in protecting society from the impact of
crime. The greater the potential for a disclosure to result in crime, the
greater the public interest in maintaining the exemption. The victims of
crime can be both organisations and individuals. Although there is a
public interest in protecting both, there is a greater public interest in
protecting individuals from the impact of crime. ‘

 

This exemption is subject to the public interest test. This means that we
must consider whether the public interest in releasing information about
call signs outweighs the public interest in refusing to disclose. We have
considered that it is in the interest of the majority of the public to
protect our operational information from potential harm, in order to
support us to ensure public safety. We have also decided that the
likelihood of damage to our resilience to provide an effective service
need not be immediate as the impact would, but in an emergency situation,
be potentially serious.

 

We also considered whether release of this information is in the public
interest in terms of explaining our decisions, ensuring accountability, or
providing transparency into our handling of public finances (for which we
already publish various financial information on our website). We have
concluded that providing details of our call signs is not necessary to
meet the public interest or reassure public concerns. As a result, we have
decided that the public interest is better served by not disclosing
information about our call signs. Please also appreciate that given the
current security climate in the UK, we recognise the necessity to take a
precautionary approach when releasing such information.

 

Further information relating to FOIA exemptions can be found on the ICO
website via the below link:

[3]https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gui...

 

 

Vehicle Disposals

 

We have interpreted ‘vehicle disposals’ to mean vehicles that are owned by
AF&RS, that have reached the end of its economic life for our requirements
and the vehicles were either part exchanged, scrapped, sold/auctioned or
donated.  This does not include any leased vehicles.

 

Our Fleet department has advised that we do not hold a comprehensive list
of vehicle disposals for the past 10 years, however, what information we
do hold I have attached. In order to help you understand the information,
please find the below points:

 

·         This information was extracted from our asset register which we
use for accounting purposes and this is not used for asset tracking

·         In the notes column, I have indicated where we have received a
capital receipt for the vehicle i.e. sold it.

·         Vehicles that were part exchanged are included within the notes
column

·         Where there is no capital receipt for a vehicle, it is treated
as a disposal from the register and further details regarding that
disposal are not recorded e.g. whether it was donated to Gambia (see
below)

·         The disposal dates are normally the date the capital receipt is
received, not necessarily  the date the vehicle was physically disposed of

·         T27 is not a disposal as such, it is being used as part of a
conversion to a mobile fuel bowser. However it is treated as a disposal in
the asset register as that asset no longer exists

 

AF&RS has a partnership with the Gambian Fire Service so most of our
former appliance vehicles are shipped over there.  For more information
about our partnership called Gambia and Avon Fire Services in Partnership
(GAFSIP), please visit the following link:
 [4]http://www.avonfire.gov.uk/charity?id=570.

 

I hope that you find the above information useful.

 

Guidance about how we deal with requests for information can be located on
our [5]website. If you are unhappy with the way your request for
information has been handled, you can request an internal review by
writing to the Data Protection Officer, Avon Fire & Rescue Service
Headquarters, Temple Back, Bristol, BS1 6EU, telephone 0117 9262061, or by
emailing [6][Avon Fire and Rescue Service request email].

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint,
you have the right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at: The
Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF, telephone 0303 123 1113 (local rate) or 01625 545 745.

Dear Joanna Warren,

Many thanks for your reply in the new updated fleetlist, however this does not help in one bit of history. The lack of registrations which would not match the fleet numbers will not help in an accurate logging of the history of the fleet.
Pleases could you send the coorect fleetlist to the email address provided as this is my personal collection of fleet history.

Yours sincerely,

Freedom of Information Act & Data Protection Requests, Avon Fire and Rescue

Dear Mr Smith

I am writing to advise that I am still working on your email request dated 26.10.2016 requesting number plate registration information for our fleet lists that are published on our website.

As your request for registration information was not part of your original request back in June (28.06.2016) for which we responded on the 20.07.2016 , I am processing this as a new request as received on the 26.10.2016. Your request will be dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and you will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, from the date of receipt subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. In some circumstances Avon Fire & Rescue Service may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised date at the earliest opportunity.

Guidance about how we deal with requests for information can be located on our website, however in the meantime, thank you for your interest in Avon Fire & Rescue Service.

Freedom of Information Act & Data Protection Requests, Avon Fire and Rescue

5 Atodiad

Dear Mr Smith

 

I write in response to your request for information dated 26.10.2016
concerning number plate registration information for our fleet lists that
are published on our website.

 

Your request for information has been dealt with under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and I can confirm that Avon Fire &
Rescue Service holds the information falling within the description
specified within your request.

 

We are now in the process of updating our fleet lists on our website to
include the registration plate, but in the meantime, please find attached
the lists.  I am informed that there are no updates to the trailer list.

 

Also attached is the list of vehicle disposals information that we
currently hold (now with registration nymber).  Please note that we hold
information from only March 2010 to Aug 2016.  Please refer to our earlier
email dated 20.07.2016 regarding additional information regarding this
list (we have already provided you with a list from March 2010 – March
2016).

 

Please note that AF&RS has obligations to protect the personal information
of individuals under the Data Protection Act and therefore we do not
publish or provide information concerning officer cars that are part of
the Avon Fire Authority Lease Scheme as this information constitutes as
‘personal data’.  This is exempt from publication under Section 40 (2) of
the FOIA (someone else’s personal data), where disclosure of this
information would breach the first Data Protection Principle ‘data must be
fairly and lawfully processed’ (as per S40(3)(a)(i) FOIA – information
that falls within the definition of ‘data’ in section 1 (1) of the DPA and
that disclosure would contravene any of the Data Protection principles).

 

Please find below an explanation why we consider this information to be
personal information.

 

Under the scheme, the vehicle user will make a personal contribution
towards the lease charge for their selected vehicle and the choice of
vehicle is of personal preference to the user.  These cars are unmarked,
are used for both work purposes and private family life. Disclosure of
make, model and registration number would not be fair to the individual
(as they also use the car for private life) and we must also consider the
possible consequences to the individual of disclosure of this information.
As officer car details are linked to individuals, AF&RS class this
information as personal information and AF&RS will not be supplying the
information for this part of your request.

 

I trust that this now concludes your request but should you require any
further assistance, please do not hesitate to get back in contact with us
either by email or the contact telephone number is below.

 

Guidance about how we deal with requests for information can be located on
our website.  AF&RS retain request correspondence for the current
financial year plus 3 years.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
